Synopsis

A miniseries based on Dominick Dunne's novel about the sensational Woodward murder case of 1955. Showgirl Ann Arden marries wealthy Billy Grenville and must contend with the disapproval of her patrician mother-in-law, Alice. Ann's rag-to-riches ascent into New York society comes to a halt when she shoots and kills her husband, claiming that she thought he was a burglar. The newspapers call it "the shooting of the century."

While those outside the family wonder if the killing was an accident or a murder, Alice has no doubts that her son was deliberately killed. However, she uses her influence to ensure Ann's acquittal, thereby protecting the family name. The Grenvilles and their high-society friends draw a protective shield across the tragedy, and, as a result, the two Mrs. Grenvilles become bound together in a conspiracy of silence.
