When an FBI agent takes over an arson investigation and unleashes powerful new forensic tools, a small-town detective needs to find a way to work with him before a serial arsonist destroys the town. Forensic Genealogy explores the use of forensic genealogy and themes of holding on to the past versus moving into the future. And how new technology can provide solutions but threatens fragile environments and cultures.
