Short Overview

True story of a woman (Stephanie Kane) who, on the eve of marriage, finds out that her would-be mother-in-law (Betty Frye) has been brutally murdered, and the leading suspect is her would-be father-in-law.  The father-in-law manages to evade a trial. A few years, Kane’s husband has a complete mental breakdown and walks away from the marriage. Kane goes to law school and becomes a successful lawyer, but her mother-in-law’s murder continues to eat away at her. She decides to find out the truth.
