Synopsis

The Smiths of Salt Lake City may have America's most common surname, but their story is anything but ordinary. With two boys, a dog, a nice house and a strong commitment to the Mormon Church, Steve and Kim Smith believed they had achieved the American dream. But after nine years of marriage, shattering revelations of betrayal came — enough to test the strongest bonds of faith and love.

The Smith Family is a searing account of one family's struggle to preserve family and faith, while redefining forgiveness in the face of daunting tragedy.
