Synopsis

On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small New England city, a prominent businessman and his wife were brutally axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden was the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial was a coast-to-coast media sensation and her story has become an American legend. LIZZIE is rage, sex, betrayal and bloody murder, featuring four female artists and a blistering rock score.
