For every missing person, there's a story. Within every story, lies the truth. The Teller and the Truth is the story of Francis Wetherbee, a beautiful, young bank teller who disappeared in 1974 after her car was found submerged in a river. Filmmaker Andrew Shapter (Before the Music Dies, Happiness Is) follows the forty-year-old cold case that sparked the imagination of her hometown of Smithville, Texas, and beyond. Did she drown?
