American Crime is an American anthology crime drama. The series centers on race, class and gender politics. Season 1 follows a racially charged murder and the subsequent trial, while season 2 tells you the story of a sexual assualt with a high school trying to cover it up.
When a young couple -- war veteran Matt and his wife, Gwen Skokie -- are attacked in their Modesto, Calif., home, Matt dies and Gwen is left unconscious, barely clinging to life. As news of the brutal crime makes its way through the media, both sets of parents sit vigil by Gwen's bed, hoping for a miracle to keep her with them. The police investigation begins to close in on four suspects in the case, and shock waves radiate through the community, stirring up tensions along ethnic and racial lines.
