Based on a classic novel this gripping courtroom drama stars Oscar® winning Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero and tells the story of Tony Grasso (Kevin Isola) - an unpopular, traumatised young man, who has built a lifelong fantasy around a woman whom he went to school with as a child. When she, her husband and their two children are found brutally murdered in their mansion, Tony is quickly incarcerated as the perfect scapegoat within a legal system under pressure to present convictions rather than unsolved cases. ._ For Ralph Barlo (Franco Nero), Tony's defence attorney, there are only stories... those that set you free, and those that will get you executed. Thus, Ralph forces Tony to recreate the stages of his life in order to define a story good enough to prevent him from execution. As we reach the gripping climax of this fascinating story, the question of guilt or innocence takes a turn down the dark path of obsession.
