In LA’s South Bay, the Battered Women’s Escape Foundation (BWEF) shelters, counsels and trains abused women so they can start a new life. However, one group cannot take advantage of its haven: women whose wealthy, influential husbands are so well connected that they can find any shelter – and thus their wives – with a phone call to a local official.
Mora Rey and Carol Ewald form the Outreach Committee. The “OC” mission: to rid these women of their abusive spouses by creating “accidents” to dispatch them. In addition to running the OC’s clandestine operations, the women help BWEF in fund raising and running the shelters for abused women.
The victims all appear to be alone when their fatal accidents occur and the OC women provide tight alibis for each other. However, the women begin to make mistakes.
