In 1980, Kenny is questioned about the murder of diner waitress Katharina Brow but he is released.
Two years later, ex-girlfriends Roseanna Perry (Juliette Lewis) and Brenda Marsh (Clea DuVall) testify against Kenny and seal a murder conviction, resulting in a life sentence without parole. But Betty refuses to accept the verdict and she puts herself through college and law school in order to prove her brother’s innocence.
