Ansel Packer is scheduled to die in twelve hours.

He knows what he's done, and now awaits the same fate he forced on those girls, years ago. Ansel doesn't want to die; he wants to be celebrated, understood.

As the clock ticks down, three women uncover the history of a tragedy and the long shadow it casts.

This is the story of the women left behind.
