STORY LINE: Anatomy of a Murder is based on a true story which occurred in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. A burned out attorney is convinced to take on a case involving rape, murder, and the nuances of truth vs lies. He vigorously defends a young man who shot his flirtatious wife's alleged rapist after she hysterically reports the assault to him. The question isn't did he do it but rather was he to be held accountable for his actions. The story is played out in a courtroom, as the witnesses' testimonies and the lawyer's cunning strategies attempt to get to the truth....or some version of it.
