Elizabeth, a fascinating and tormented woman in her late forties who used to work as a stripper and escort, ends up in Frisco, a small town a few miles from Denver, Colorado, to serve her sentence of twenty-four months under house arrest. Frisco might be the last chance in her life. As she begins to settle in the small and seemingly friendly community, she starts receiving small undesirable surprises from an interloper who breaks into her house and leaves postcards in the most unexpected places… Evidently, someone discovered what it took her a lifetime to forget. Elizabeth is one of the very few survivors of the massacre in Jonestown, Guyana, the biggest mass-suicide in modern history. Elizabeth will soon realize that her past has come back to haunt her for finishing the work that History had failed to complete, i.e. killing her.
