A trail of lies, secrets and racial prejudice is uncovered when a pair of journalists, Zora Neale Hurston and William Bradford Huie, investigate the murder of a white doctor by an affluent African-American woman. Based on a true case in South Florida in 1952, this suspenseful drama has powerful implications to this day, posing questions of fairness and justice in a small Southern town.
