A stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house, only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. The woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing, and the unexpected guest decides to help. As the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.
