In the summer of 1997, Auman was charged with the felony murder of Denver Police Officer Bruce VanderJagt, despite being locked in the back of a police patroller when the deadly shots were fired. Pleading her innocence, Auman writes to author Hunter S. Thompson and several politicians in a last-ditch effort to make an appeal, yet fails to receive any response or support. Auman is devastated and hopeless until Thompson finally responds. Using his vast network of influence to organize the “Free Lisl” campaign, Thompson starts working with Vanity Fair Contributing Editor Mark Seal to uncover what really happened that fateful summer day in 1997.
