A school play, a group of friends, a new girl who has been in other plays, a mysteriously obtained script of a murder mystery. Opening night comes and the police come to arrest the new girl, Melanie, because the play appeared to be the perfect setup to kill, really kill, Rindy, a girl mysteriously linked to a not-talked-about accident involving Clyde, the missing link that connects all the other actors in the play. Was she setup? Melanie doesn't trust the local police or her out-of-town lawyer. She must conduct her own search for a motive. Who killed Rindy and why?
