Description: "A Christmas Family Tragedy" explores the Lawson Family Massacre of Christmas Day, 1929. On that day, respected tobacco farmer Charlie Lawson brutally murdered his wife and six of his seven children before committing suicide. It was one of the most horrible and mysterious mass murders in North Carolina history. The Lawson murders became immortalized in a classic bluegrass murder ballad, ghost stories, tours of the crime scene and legends known coast to coast. But, this southern documentary shows for the first time the true tragedy: the story of the families, the continuing effect it has on the community and the tragedy of rural domestic violence.
