Biographical drama follows famed writer Truman Capote in the course of writing In Cold Blood.

1959, Holcomb, Kansas: A family of four are brutally murdered in a quiet Midwestern town, bringing New Yorker writer Truman Capote on the scene alongside friend and fellow scribe Harper Lee to perform research for an upcoming article. Fascinated by the case and its suspects, Capote expands his trip into an ambitious planning session for what would ultimately become his magnum opus, embarking on a troubled professional relationship with inmate Perry Smith transcending commonly-accepted boundaries between author and subject as In Cold Blood takes shape.
