The summary is based on the true story of three teenagers convicted of killing three 8-year-old boys in West Memphis in the spring of 1993. In the scenario laid documentary journalist Mara Leveritt book "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the Trinity West Memphis / Devils Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three.” The book recounts the trial of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr. accused three men, still young at the time, of murdering three young boys of eight years in West Memphis, Arkansas. However, after many years proclaiming his innocence, challenges and suspensions appeared in 2007 new evidence casting doubt on his authorship in the murder for which he had been convicted. They completed a sentence of 18 years in prison before being released on parole in August 2011.
The Devil's Knot is initially a puzzle whose pieces are nested within each other, in such a way that it seems impossible to undo the whole, without taking the time and patience to observe the object from all angles. An image is present in the gallery.
The story, written by screenwriters Scott Derrickson and Paul Bordmanom, based on the book by journalist Mara Leveritt criminal "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the Trinity West Memphis," which followed the process and made a detailed chronicle of events. In 1993, in Memphis killed three eight-year old boys. A year later, police arrested three teenagers on suspicion of murder. The prosecution claimed that the murders were committed as a ritual sacrifice to Satan. Harassment of the three defendants, which began after the statement, has led to the fact that all the young men convicted without any evidence. Two sentenced to life imprisonment, the third - to death.
