Synopsis (via Lifetime)
A teenager becomes overwhelmed with guilt after her lies to support a friend’s sexual assault claim lead to the accused teacher’s suicide.
Detectives question teenagers about sexual assault reports and arrest the science teacher for misconduct. Traci and her mother, Melanie, go into the police station and make a statement on behalf of the assaulted student named Devon. Traci lies about witnessing sexual misconduct to win over Devon as a friend…
A friend bails out Mr. Adkins, and he maintains his innocence and tries to clear his name. That is until a suicide note is found by his abandoned car on top of a bridge. The suicide spooks (She has dreams of him in her backseat with Halloween zombie makeup on.) Traci and she wants to go to the police. Devon will have none of that and makes Traci promise to stick to their story.
Devon has been working with her boyfriend Jay to set up Mr. Adkins. I’m not 100% sure of the motive behind their actions.
Sophie Gendron is back playing the beautiful best friend. Lifetime MVP! She tells Melanie
June, Mr. Adkins’ daughter, comes back to town and takes a substitute teacher position at the school. She dates a man named Steve at night and gets close to Traci and Devon to enact her revenge during the day. (She snoops through their lockers, offers them rides home, and stalks them on social media.) June earns Traci’s trust and gets her to come clean about the lie. June tries to convince the student to let the police know and continues to do her own investigating.
Devon warns Traci to stay out of it and insists that more people than she knows are involved. She gets a gun and meets June. The boyfriend shows up and almost kills June/Traci. Still not 100% sure what went down here, but whocares. Devon pleads guilty at 17!!!!
June goes to Africa and plans to come back home to date Steve after she is fone with whatever she is doing.
