The perfect mystery. Only one person knows the truth... but she's dead.

Boulder, Colorado has long been known as a peaceful, progressive community... until the day a 6-year-old beauty pageant queen was discovered brutally murdered in the basement of one of Boulder's most prominent families.

Respected author and producer Lawrence Schiller spent over a year in Boulder meticulously researching and writing the best-selling novel upon which this film is based. Perfect murder, perfect town is a brilliant portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight of public suspicion and an affluent, tranquil city torn apart by a crime it wasn't prepared to deal with.
