Everyone is guilty until proven otherwise.

In the town of Stoneheaven, the body of a young woman is found hanging from a tree, upside down and completely naked. Her name was Sarah Brooks.

This discovery alarms the entire community, especially Declan Jacobson, a local events reporter, who tries to document the case. Who could have killed that girl and why?

Jacobson starts investigating Sarah’s past and her relationships with family and friends. Despite being introverted and reserved, Sarah led a double life. Girlfriend of her classmate Jason, she also maintained a secret relationship with David Porter, her language and literature teacher.

But this was not Sarah’s only secret. When Jacobson finds Sarah’s diary, he discovers that the parents, a seemingly perfect couple, had been unfaithful: she, with the town’s reverend, Dennis Brown, and he, with Mary Anne, Sarah’s best friend and the reverend’s daughter, who he got pregnant.

One day, after a violent argument with her parents, Sarah confides in Billy, Mary Anne’s brother. Tormented by the news and jealousy, since he always secretly loved Sarah, Billy suffers an uncontrollable fit of rage, ends up hitting her, and suffocates her to death.
