An earnest young policeman believes a local woman has been wrongly convicted of murder and turns to defense attorney Claire Darrow (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and D.A. Miles Strasberg (Tom Cavanagh) for help. Laura Graham has steadfastly denied killing her husband Tom but was unable to rebut the powerful evidence tying her to the crime. That evidence, however, did not include a corpse: Tom’s body was never found. As Claire and Miles’ investigation leads them down unexpected paths, Claire is increasingly certain of Laura’s innocence - and not at all certain that a murder even took place.
