Airs Monday, November 19 at 8:00 p.m. Description: The Ozarks have long been an isolated part of the country. Steep mountains break up the landscape into hills and hollows, making each little town into its own microcosm in this place some call the "State of the Ozarks;" the state line between Missouri and Arkansas meaning little to them. Here, families have stayed in the same hollows for generations with little influence from the outside world. Everyone knows everyone else, and their parents, and their grandparents. Which means that daily life here is steeped in the past, for better or for worse. In this episode, we go deep into the lives of people who live with the ghosts of their past: a family living with the legacy of a murder, young fiddlers learning songs passed down for centuries, and a married couple overcoming a history of domestic violence, together.
