A determined young American filmmaker sets out to make a film based upon a "true" crime story involving an older North Carolina politico and his much younger staffer, who may or may not be his lover. Was she the victim of his $100 million dollar kickback scheme? Or was she the femme fatale who drove him down this path that led to the death of a decorated police officer and to their double suicide pact? These are the questions haunting the young filmmaker and his immersion in the mystery only deepens when, after turning down every major young actress in Hollywood, he casts an unknown to play the young woman at the heart of the story. She also turns out to be an unknown whose own personal tale is as murky as the yarn he's trying to tell. And more than the heart of the story, she becomes much more to his own heart and to his quest to make "art" out of "truth." Along the way, the road takes him far from the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, where the "crime" occurred, to Lago di Garda, Verona, Rome and London, foreign locales where new truths are discovered and where clues to other crimes and passions, darker and even more complex, are uncovered.
