This is the story of a small Indiana town, three murders, and the trial that followed; it is a story that ends in the incarceration, conviction, and eventual release of a young woman named Charity Payne who would become the focal point of a small town's frustration with the criminal justice system. What caused this young woman to become involved in such horrible circumstances? What impact did her eventual release have on the victims' families? What does this story say about the state of the criminal justice system in America today?
Documentary filmmaker Paul G. Lyzun goes on an investigative journey, interviewing family members of the victims, friends and family of Charity, lawyers, law enforcement, and Charity Payne herself.
