The discovery of the brutal axe-murders of Andrew and Abby Borden under their own roof in Fall River, Massachusetts paralyzes the small community. No one can understand why anyone would want to harm the respected Bordens.

As the police search for clues, Emma comforts an increasingly distraught Lizzie whose memories flash in scattered fragments.
