Travis Alexander, a handsome liberal Mormon, is a successful 'motivational speaker'. In Las Vegas, his charm proves irresistible for local girl Jodi Arias, who seduces him by surprise. She follows him to his Arizona home, obsessed with becoming his wife. Called to order by his childhood buddy and the church community, Travis keeps pulling back, reminding he never promised a relationship, just sex for fun as agreed. Her absurd 'expectations' turn into stalking and ultimately lethal hatred when he dumps her for proper Mormon Katie. Written by KGF Vissers

Was based on a true story. See more »


When Jodi is corresponding via text with Katie (while Travis is in the shower), the time is 2:04 pm. Since the last photos of Travis alive and in the shower were at approximately 5:30pm this seems to be a quite obvious oversight. See more »

User Reviews

a balanced portrayal of a sensational story
24 June 2013 | by woernerdavidSee all my reviews

I felt the made-for-TV movie about Jody Arias was actually very good and was a balanced presentation of a sensational story. Jody Arias is obviously unbalanced, paranoid, has super-low self-esteem, and many other psychological defects. But as the story is shown, it also balances this with Travis Alexander's duplicity. He wanted to maintain the appearance of being a good, pious Mormon but kept Jody Arias as his secret life and kept her out of the mainstream of his life. When he tried to break up several times, he always ended up back in bed with Jody. He certainly did not deserve the terrible thing that happened to him, but he contributed his share. I thought the film was balanced and worth watching.
