When Mark McPherson begins investigating the murder of Laura Hunt, he cannot possibly imagine the events that will unfold over the course of just a few short days. For example, the fact that he will have to deal with the three men who were in love with Laura before her death. Or the fact that he just might join them as a fourth lover. And what if Laura isn't actually dead at all? What if he finds himself in love with the suspect in a murder investigation instead of the deceased victim? Join us for the twisting, turning ride that is Laura and remember - if you've only seen the movie, you haven't seen the real "Laura".
