It's a chilling Southern Gothic tale of an attempted murder by rattlesnake. This documentary explores the mystifying events leading up to October 4, 1991, when an unusual violent crime was reported in Scottsboro, Alabama: Darlene Summerford accused her husband, Pentecostal preacher Glenn Summerford, of forcing her hand into a rattlesnake bed in an attempt to kill her. Employing dramatic re-creations and interviews with those who knew Summerford best, the documentary weaves between the past and present to unravel the details of the controversial investigation and trial that unfolded.
