But love is blind, and lovers cannot see what pretty follies they themselves commit.' The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare. Shakespeare was right but unfortunately it's not just foolish acts that love can inspire, but murderous ones too. From the couple that breaks religious traditions for love, to the priest who has fallen for a nun, each episode of this true crime drama centres on star-crossed lovers who have defied the forces trying to keep them apart. But once they've crossed that line, anything can happen on Investigation Discovery's newest docu-drama "Forbidden: Dying for Love".
Among the forbidden tales uncovered in this series is the single mum whose 18-month jail sentence led to a passionate relationship with a prison guard. But when she vows to leave him, will he let her go? When a strict father who forbids relationships discovers his 15-year-old daughter plans to run away with her boyfriend of four years, will he follow through on his vow to kill her? And when a single mum's new fiance asks her to kill his ex-wife and children, will she accept his sinister proposal in the fear her family could be next? Anything is possible in the name of love. Especially when that love is forbidden.
