Covered in blood, seven people rush into the living room of an old New England farmhouse clutching ice picks, cleavers and pitchforks. Members of the closely knit Latino community of bucolic Granville, New Hampshire, have just murdered their fellow citizen Joe, town bully and local tyrant. They are exhilarated, having liberated the town of Joe's outrageous crimes after six years of terror. But as the excitement wears off, the seven begin to have doubts about the righteousness of their act, about each other's trustworthiness and, worst of all, about Joe: is he really dead? Massacre explores the courageous and volatile connections between members of a community forced to bond together and act against terrifying oppression, and the emotional toll of such an act.
