The Amish people of Pennsylvania live "plain," just as they have for generations. But something suddenly shatters the tightly knit community's rural calm. Katie Fitch, an unmarried 18-year-old Amish girl, is accused of murdering her newborn baby.
Based on Jodi Picoult's novel, Plain Truth is a suspenseful mystery and a perceptive culture clash. Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) plays the Philadelphia defense attorney who, named the girl's guardian for the duration of the trial, moves in with the Fitches and finds her big-city notions challenged by a lot more than not having a place to recharge her phone. Alison Pill (Pieces of April) is Katie: out of her depths in the larger world and insisting despite all medical evidence that she was never pregnant. Two people, two ways of life: one goal: the Plain Truth.
