This is a contemporary fable loosely based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment". On the outside, Roseanne (Keena) is a perfect and popular teen. However, behind closed doors, she plots the murder of her stepfather, who has been molesting her.

She soon finds herself tumbling down a murky path of guilt, cover-ups, and police investigation.
