But the next morning, the police find the dead body of Lars Adams, a married man who Lucey had been having an affair with, only a few feet from where her car broke down. As a result, Lucey is arrested for Lars' murder. Lars' wife, Amy, realizes that her husband was killed accidentally, but after learning of his philandering with Lucey, Amy decides that Lucey should take the rap.
