Documentary looking into the stranger-than-fiction life of Joyce McKinney, an American beauty queen with an exceptionally high IQ who, over the course of four decades, has generated a multitude of bizarre and sensational tabloid headlines. In 1977, McKinney was charged with abducting and imprisoning a young male American Mormon missionary; however, she maintains that she was simply trying to rescue him from a cult. She was then accused by British police of fleeing the country by donning a red wig and posing as part of a mime troupe in Canada. Years later, she made the news again when a Korean scientist allegedly cloned her dog, producing five puppies. Then, in 2008, McKinney faced burglary charges in Tennessee while trying to raise funds to buy a false leg for her three-legged horse. This film records McKinney's own version of events, highlighting her undeniable talent for courting the headlines and begging the question, how exactly do we define the truth?
