Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A controversial Memphis senatorial candidate is murdered, and the prime suspect is the victim's deaf campaign manager, Dana Sue Lacey (Marlee Martin). Despite Dana Sue's popularity with the decedent's constituents, the D.A. insists upon pressing for a Murder One conviction -- and as quickly as possible. The defendant's case is taken by celebrated attorney Ronnie Williams (Regina King), who has never lost in court. Unfortunately, Ronnie's strategy is compromised by Dana's refusal to reveal the whole story about her relationship with the dead man's politically ambitious son. Made for cable, Where the Truth Lies was first seen on Lifetime on September 13, 1999.
