Fatal Vision synopsis

In 1970, military doctor Jeffrey McDonald (Gary Cole) reports a hideous and confusing story: A gang of hippies akin to the Manson Family broke into his North Carolina home and slaughtered his wife and two daughters, while somehow only wounding him slightly as he tried to fight them off. As McDonald continues to proclaim his innocence, his skeptical father-in-law Freddy Kassab (Karl Malden) and investigative journalist Joe McGinniss (Frank Dent) probe his story to uncover the truth.
