Murder Ballad Synopsis: 

"Sara, Tom and Michael are three New Yorkers caught in a secret love triangle that could tear their lives apart. Life has not dealt any of them the cards they wanted, and Sara is stuck in the middle, torn between her downtown past and her uptown future. Is the one that got away really worth risking everything for? But in the true tradition of all great murder ballads, when songs of love-gone-wrong are sung, blood must be spilled. The question is… by whom?"
