Sex, Passion, Betrayal, Murder
A true story of an unlikely serial killer
A brilliant biochemistry student who is also a prostitute.
A brutally bludgeoned body buried naked in the snow.
Thus begins Winter of Frozen Dreams, a sordid love story and a macabre
web of blackmail, lust, and deceit. The Hoffman case was the first televised
murder trial in US history.
The true-life story of Barbara Hoffman, is complex and contradictory in every sense, she was both a brilliant biochemistry student at the University of Wisconsin and Madison’s most notorious prostitute.
On a frigid, twenty-two below zero Christmas morning, Barbara Hoffman’s (Thora Birch) distraught young fiancé, Jerry Davies (Brendan Sexton III) lead police investigators to a corpse, which only hours before, he had buried in a snow bank. Lead by Detective Lulling (Academy Award winner Keith Carradine), the police investigators uncover the naked and brutally bludgeoned body of Harry Berge. Davies desperately insists that he is not a murderer and that he and Hoffman are guilty only of burying the corpse of a stranger.
Shades of film noir blend with true crime, as Barbara Hoffman lives out her days in prison, refusing to give interviews or even go before the parole board.
