A no-holds-barred docuseries, Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered provides a never-before-seen look at the killings of at least 30 African-American children and young adults that occurred over a two-year period in the Georgia capital.

Comprised of five episodes, the documentary delicately and impartially relates the stories of the accused, the victims, and their families, giving the viewers enough information to decide what side they’re on. While the documentary doesn’t solve the case, it certainly leaves viewers baffled and enraged over how justice for these wicked crimes has yet to be properly served.
