Adapted by Burton Bumgarner From the short story by Susan Glaspell . A farmer has been found dead and his wife, Minnie, is the prime suspect. The sheriff, a deputy and other men meet at the lonely farmhouse to go over the evidence while two wives gather some clothes and necessities for Minnie, who is in jail. Two neighbor ladies, the Gains sisters, arrive to see what they can learn about the disturbing events of the previous day. As the men go about the business of investigation, the women make a remarkable discovery: the motive for the crime. Set in 1917, three years before women had the right to vote or serve on juries, the women become Minnie's jury. The story, which features four powerful female roles, is a fascinating work of moral and social conscience, as well as an intriguing murder mystery.
