Synopsis

Alice Goodwin (Sigourney Weaver) lives with her husband (David Strathairn) and children on a Wisconsin farm, where her outspoken ways have caused her to become isolated from much of the local community. Her only real friend is Theresa (Julianne Moore), and the two women regularly babysit each other's kids; but when Theresa's daughter accidentally drowns one day while in Alice's care, even that friendship reaches an end. When a local boy then falsely accuses Alice of molesting him, she is arrested and sent to jail, and her family begins to fall apart under the pressure.
