The film script by Michael Vervey is dedicated to the unhealthy relationship between the infamous psychopath and rapist Ted Bundy and his girlfriend Elizabeth Klopfer (Lily Collins). Bundy was charismatic and attractive, behaved with women with courtesy, which greatly helped the maniac in the search for new victims (there were about 30 in total). At the same time, Ted's girl for many years denied his involvement in the brutal murders, but in the end she personally surrendered the rapist to the police. In 1979, the trial of Bandi took place, chaired by former Miami police officer Edward Covart (John Malkovich). As a result, the maniac was sentenced to death, but he was executed only in 1989, two years after Kovart's death. The trial was broadcast on national television and attracted media attention, since Bundy himself represented his interests and argued with the judge.
