One of Chicago’s most notorious murder cases of recent years is dissected as a tragic tale of immigrant ambition, family dysfunction, and pathological bonding, as the American dream ends in 100-year prison terms for the Korean American brother and sister who carried out the crime. Eager to shed her longtime fiancé and business partner Robert O’Dubaine in 1993, Catherine Suh supplied her 19-year-old brother Andrew with a gun and convinced him to ambush the victim in his own garage. THE HOUSE OF SUH includes astonishing interviews with Andrew from prison as the intricate history of the co-dependent relationship of the siblings unravels. HDCAM video. (BS)
