On April 19, 1995 the life of U.S. Customs employee, wife and mother Priscilla Salyers went to work as usual at Oklahoma City's Murrah Federal Building and her life was never the same. This moving drama, made for the Lifetime Cable Network, tells her remarkable story. When the dust from the terrorist bomb that ripped the Murrah building apart settled, rescue attempts immediately commenced. After many long hours, Salyers was found beneath huge hunks of rubble that should have by all rights, killed her. During the frantic rescue efforts and Salyers' subsequent slow recovery, her family is stressed to the breaking point. Though it was one of the most difficult tasks in her life, Salyers decided to face accused bomber Timothy McVeigh in court and testify against him.
