Dark Places

In 1985, her entire family was murdered. 30 years later, the truth emerges.


Dark Places
Libby Day was only eight years old when her mother and two sisters were brutally murdered in their rural Kansas farmhouse. Her testimony put her troubled 16-year-old brother in prison for life. Twenty-five years later, a broke and desperate Libby has run through donations from a sympathetic public and royalties from her sensational autobiography, without ever moving past the events of that night. When she accepts a fee to appear at a gathering of true-crime aficionados, she is shocked to learn most of them believe her brother is innocent and the real killer is still at large. In need of money, she reluctantly agrees to help them reexamine the crime by revisiting the worst moments of her life. But as they dig deeper into the circumstances surrounding the murders, her recollections start to unravel and she is forced to question exactly what she saw... or didn't see. As long-buried memories resurface, she begins to confront the wrenching truths that led up to that horrific night. This film seems to appeal more to the public than to the critics.
