On November 16 1959 Truman Capote reads about the murder of a Kansas family. There are no suspects. With Harper Lee he visits the town: he wants to write about their response. First he must get locals to talk then after arrests he must gain access to the prisoners. One talks constantly; the other Perry Smith says little. Capote is implacable wanting the story believing this book will establish a new form of reportage: he must figure out what Perry wants. Their relationship becomes something more than writer and character: Perry killed in cold blood the state will execute him in cold blood; does Capote get his story through cold calculation or is there a price for him to pay?
