What Is Love And Death’s Plot?
A husband and wife who are local church attendees as well as members in Wylie, Texas, have a beautiful and serene life in 1980. Candy Montgomery (Elizabeth Olsen) kills her friend Betty Gore (Lily Rabe) with an ax, and their lives begin to unravel.
Initially, Candy and Betty’s husband (Jesse Plemons) were conducting an extramarital affair that was unknown to their respective partners in the second part of 1970. Betty Gore is discovered dead with 41 ax stabs within a short period of time after the affair ends. Candy becomes the leading suspect because she was the last person to see Betty alive, according to her statement.
When the trial resumes, Candy admits that she would be the one who murdered Betty. She claims that Betty became upset after learning about her husband’s affair with Candy and attacked her first. As a result, Candy claims she killed Betty in self-defense and was not charged with a crime.
