USD Overview A serial killer is stalking teenage boys in the Bronx. Katherine McDonald, a seasoned and cynical family court attorney transplanted from Manhattan, is brought into the search for this person who targets only boys who are, or have been, residents of group homes for abused or neglected teenagers. Child sexual abuse, the overreaching of prosecutors, and homophobia are all landmines hidden in the landscape of the characters' lives.
