Based roughly on real-life events, this tv-movie recounts the story of a Wisconsin teacher's aide convicted of hiring teen students first to spy on her cheating husband and later to kill him. The film begins with the murder then traces in flashback the events leading up to it, followed by the subsequent police investigation leading to arrests and eventual criminal convictions of both Borchardt and the teens.

The front door will be unlocked. Then on your right is a gun cabinet. You take the shotgun and you walk down the stairs, to the basement where he sleeps. And you do it. You turn around and walk up the stairs, and you toss a few things around to make believe it was a robbery. And then you leave. It's so easy.
