Inspired by the best-selling Jodi Picoult novel of the same name, PLAIN TRUTH is a riveting, mutli-layered drama starring Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s Mariska Hargitay as the tenacious criminal lawyer who sheds her urban persona to infiltrate the small Pennsylvania Amish community where her client stands accused of a shocking murder. In PLAIN TRUTH, after a newborn is found dead in a peaceful Amish farming community, people begin asking: was it a tragic accident or murder? That’s the shocking question facing Ellie Harrison (Hargitay), a high-profile criminal lawyer who ditches her self-indulgent city life to head to rural Pennsylvania, where she must defend the Amish teenager accused of killing her own baby. Despite the surmounting evidence, 18-year-old Katie (Alison Pill) insists that she was never pregnant. In search of the truth, and her client’s secrets, Ellie attempts to blend in with the Amish community and break down the barriers of this very private society. Can she discover what really happened in a world that doesn’t welcome outsiders?
