Matt Shepard Is A Friend of Mine explores the life and tragic death of Matthew Shepard, the gay student brutally murdered in Laramie, Wyoming in one of the most notorious hate crimes in U.S. history. Framed through the personal lens of friends and family, it's a story of loss, love, and courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy. In the end, the notion of forgiveness embodied in the moving and courageous final act of Shepard's parents takes on truly heroic proportions
