   Of all the dark forms that murder can take, the slaying of an entire family by the father is one of the most tragic and the least understood. Experts call this phenomenon familicide - or family annihilation. Told for the first time through compelling stories by those with direct experience of familicide, this documentary delves deep into the male mind in an attempt to understand the psychology that drives men to destroy their wife, children - and very often themselves. In doing so, we expose and challenge long held beliefs and misconceptions that surround this tragic phenomenon.

‘Where She Lies’ tells the true story of an assaulted teen, Peggy Phillips, who gives birth out of wedlock in Tennessee in 1962. Peggy receives conflicting narratives about her infant’s fate, with a doctor claiming that her baby had passed, and another, Peggy’s mother, that the baby is still alive. After a series of new attempts to uncover the truth, including exhuming her infant’s alleged grave, Peggy reaches an impasse. Ten years later, a documentarian helps Peggy uncover the truth about what happened. Through its investigation of false narratives, memory, and motherhood, the film explores the gas-lighting and discrimination that Peggy faced as a sexual assault survivor in the 1960’s deep south.
