"In 1857, 120 immigrants from Arkansas were murdered under a white flag by Utah's Mormon settlers -- one of the most horrifying events in the history of the American West known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Through the recounting of a young girl who survived and the accidental discovery of the victims' remains, this true story exposes a perpetual coverup as descendants from both sides struggle to heal wounds of bitterness."
