The piece charts a harrowing episode in which  two sisters try in vain to save a third from being shot by her ex-boyfriend. The events were recreated by actors wearing motion capture suits, and the environment was based on location and crime scene photographs.

Sources include interviews with the survivors; 911 calls made by the sisters; and police and court records.
