"VALENTINE ROAD," exploring a middle school murder and its complicated aftermath kicks off HBO Documentary Films Fall Series on Monday, Oct. 7.

VALENTINE ROAD explores the murder of a teenager who had begun exploring his gender identity, revealing the circumstances that led to the shocking crime, as well as its complicated aftermath. Directed and produced by first-time filmmaker Marta Cunningham and shepherded by award-winning producers Sasha Alpert ( HBO's "Autism: The Musical" ) and Eddie Schmidt ( HBO's "Twist of Faith" ), the film raises issues about the safety of LGBT teens, juvenile justice and the ability of the country's educational and social service systems to prevent such tragedies. VALENTINE ROAD debuts MONDAY, OCT. 7 ( 9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT ), exclusively on HBO, during National Bullying Prevention Month.

Feb. 12, 2008, started like any other day at E.O. Green Junior High School in Oxnard, a California beach town northwest of Los Angeles. Eighth-grade students filed into computer lab to do an assignment on the topic of tolerance. But before the class was over, 15-year-old Lawrence "Larry" King lay fighting for his life, shot twice in the back of the head at point-blank range by classmate Brandon McInerney. Two days later, on Valentine's Day, Larry died, the victim of a crime that grabbed national headlines and dramatically changed the lives of the students, teachers and community.

Other HBO playdates: Oct. 7 ( 4:50 a.m. ), 10 ( 11:00 a.m. ), 13 ( 12:15 p.m. ), 15 ( 5:00 p.m. ) and 19 ( 10:30 a.m. ). HBO2 playdates: Oct. 9 ( 8:00 p.m. ) and 27 ( 7:50 a.m., 4:35 a.m. )
