Plot

A small town is shocked by the brutal ax murder of a woman. However, they are even more shocked when a reserved neighboring woman, Candy Morrison (Hershey), who is a wife and mother, becomes the chief suspect. During the investigation, she is placed under hypnosis which reveals a different personality completely. The film is based on the story of Wylie, Texas, housewife Candy Montgomery's murder of Betty Gore in 1980, and sometimes is titled Evidence of Love, after a 1984 book on the murder case.

Production

Portions of the movie, including interior and exterior scenes of Candy Morrison's home, were actually filmed in Plano, Texas (another northern suburb of Dallas).
