Steeped in circumstances, legal complexities and raw family emotion, a will has the ability to tear families apart or bring them together. In "THE WILL" Investigation Discovery invites viewers on an emotional and intimate journey as the final wishes of the deceased are revealed to the family members left behind. Expressed in dollars and cents, heirlooms and even last words of wisdom, a person's will is often a telling reflection of what they perceived of their loved ones. But, what happens when there's room for interpretation to the final will? Or worse what if a person leaves no will at all?
