Amazon Says: A vicious psychopath murders your fiance?, then rapes you. Do you call the cops, fight back, run like hell? Or do you bond with your tormentor? Events that plunge emotionally fragile Hope Masters (Cheryl Ladd of TV's Charlie's Angels) into a living nightmare become more monstrous when, frightened into believing the twisted, self-serving tale her attacker (Sam Elliott) weaves, she comes to view him as a hero. She trusts him, depends on him, lets him become part of her life. And Hope lies for him - a lie that leads to her arrest and trial for her fiance?'s murder. The fact-based A Death in California locks a heartbreakingly vulnerable woman, a manipulative killer and viewers in a bizarre dance of crime, punishment and death.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
