This is a screen version of a real, very sad story that occurred in central Texas in the early 90’s. In our time in the US the word “Waco” has become a household name and is used in cases when ordinary citizens with weapons in hand oppose to public authorities. “Waco” consists of six episodes telling about one of the most horrific tragedies in the history of US law enforcement: the confrontation between the FBI, the ATF and sectarians from the “Branch of David” in April-May 1993 at Mount Carmel Ranch near the Texas town that gave TV series title.
