“Dark Soul” explores the collateral damage surrounding an unforgivable act committed by a 16 year-old teen, Jeremy. With the help of the psychiatrist-coroner in charge of the investigation, Jeremy’s mom tries to understand how her son, a seemingly trouble-free boy, could commit such a hateful crime. What triggered this nightmare? When did everything change? Together, the two women set out on a mission to unravel the mystery.
