In May 1934, near Hugo, Oklahoma, a homeless man and his thirteen-year-old daughter are befriended by a charismatic drifter. Newly released from Leavenworth, Clint Palmer lures the pair to Texas where the father, Dillard Garrett, mysteriously disappears, and his daughter Lucile begins a one-year ordeal as Palmer's captive on a crime spree that culminates in the notorious Greenville, Texas "skeleton murder" trial of 1935. This is a chilling tale of survival and redemption, and one of the most celebrated trials of the Public Enemy era.
