A woman who believes that her brother-in-law is responsible for the murder of his wife is obsessed with gathering evidence to tie him to the murder.
The true story that inspired the movie made headlines in Pennsylvania in the 1980's. That's when police say Glen Wolsieffer killed his wife, Betty Wolsieffer, and made it look like a burglary. Wilkes-Barr police were dispatched to the Wolsieffer home in 1986, where they found the dead body of a woman on the bedroom floor. The woman's husband, Glen, insisted that someone broke into the home and ambushed them. Police didn't buy his story. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to spend 8 to 20 years in prison.
