Un joven veterano de guerra de Irak casado con la “lovely sweetheart” mujer estadounidense, aparece muerto en su hogar. Asesinado. Su mujer lucha por su vida y presenta signos de haber sido violada. Los padres de este héroe son avisados por la policía. Ellos están interpretados por Timothy Hutton en el rol del padre, ex adicto al juego y la madre es Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewife),  quien encarna a la mujer sacrificada. Ella representa todos los valores de una midwife americana: patriotismo, fe extrema, valor por la lucha armada, sin dudas es la que más prejuicios presenta. Esto es American Crime.

AMERICAN CRIME -  "Episode One" - Following the home invasion murder of Matt Skokie - a war vet - and an assault on his wife Gwen, four suspects are brought into custody: Tony Gutiérrez, an impressionable teen who got in way over his head even under the watchful eye of his dedicated and hard-working father, Alonzo Gutiérrez. Hector Tontz, a young man who has lived life on the fringes of society and has made bad decisions just to survive. Carter Nix and Aubry Taylor, two incredibly lost souls whose addiction to drugs and to one another has become destructive and paralyzing. Though the suspects fit a profile, they and their situations are far more complicated than anyone would have initially believed...as is true for the victims themselves. As Russ and Barb Skokie - divorced and estranged - arrive to both bury their son Matt, and seek a measure of justice for his killing, they discover their son may have been far from an innocent bystander in his own murder. Told from the points of view of all those involved, this new drama examines preconceptions on faith, family, gender, race, class and other aspects of our social experience with an approach and perspectives historically underserved in media, on the series premiere of "American Crime," THURSDAY, MARCH 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

La serie la terminan de componer un grupo de “latinos”-todos ellos, una gran mezcla que los estadounidenses insisten en unir desde México a Argentina sin identificar ninguna diferencia-que varían entre un padre trabajador honesto, anticuado en su forma de ver el mundo y educar a sus hijos, un pandillero de los clásicos que nos venden en la tevé, la hija latina que el padre cuida como un tesoro reflejando al macho latino, un hijo que intenta liberarse de ese padre autoritario que desea hacer las cosas bien pero intenta revelarse. Todos ellos se verán envueltos e involucrados en el asesinato del joven blanco asesinado.

A ellos también se suma una pareja de adictos a las drogas que viven en la marginalidad: se compone por una joven rubia, caucásica y un chico afroamericano que desean vivir en un mundo mejor pero viven atados a sus propias adicciones.

A pesar de que la serie buscará a lo largo de los episodios al asesino del soldado, American Crime nos muestra el conflicto interacial que vive desde siempre EEUU. Es un tema que nunca termina de resolverse (sino veamos las declaraciones del candidato por el partido republicano Donald Trump), que acá aparece ficcionado pero se puede anclar en la realidad.

La serie es muy interesante desde ese lugar y creo que hoy en día en las series encontramos análisis de la sociedad muy interesantes o al menos como lo determina y lo ve el “norte”.

American Crime estrena este viernes 4 de septiembre por AXN a las 22.
