On a freezing December night in 1963, 13-year-old Alison Carter took her dog for a walk and was never seen again. As the entire country watched, newly-promoted Detective Inspector George Bennett turned up enough evidence to see his suspect hanged and was hailed a hero by the people of Scardale. More than four decades later, the lingering cloud left by the missing body of Alison Carter compels controversial filmmaker Catherine Heathcote to turn her camera to Bennett.
