    On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. It was one of the most notorious hate crimes in US history. Years later, Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt's, revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos and rare video footage as Matt's all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of his family and closest friends.  Through the film, new revelations about the murder are revealed and the notions of forgiveness, loss, and redemption are explored by those who were there.  LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?
