A school shooting disrupts the lives of a Texas family, leading to media attention and a national conversation about gun control, religion and politics.
From the producers: In "The Crusade of Connor Stephens," an extreme loss shakes a Texas family as it comes to terms with a tragic act of violence. In the midst of widespread media attention, their story becomes an allegory for the national debate over religion, tolerance and the seedlings of hate. With humor and resilience, they will confront the ghosts of the past and discover the brutal universal truths that define the American family in the 21st century.
