A newborn is found dead in a peaceful Amish farming community. Was it a tragic accident, or murder? Thats the shocking question facing Ellie Harrison (Mariska Hargitay), a high-profile criminal lawyer who ditches her self-indulgent city life to head to rural Pennsylvania, where she must defend the Amish teenager accused of killing her own baby. Despite the surmounting evidence, 18-year-old Katie (Alison Pill) insists that she was never pregnant. In search of the truth--and her clients secrets--Ellie attempts to blend in with the Amish community and break down the barriers of this very private society. Can she discover what really happened in a world that doesn't welcome outsiders? Inspired by the best-selling Jodi Picoult novel of the same name.
