The true crime pic is based on Peters' and Sam Rule's book, 'I'll Get You!' Drugs, Lies, and the Terrorizing of a PTA Mom'. The book is described as the true story of an ordinary American woman who survived an evil conspiracy that turned her life upside down and shook her hometown to its core.
Kelli Peters was PTA president and volunteer at her daughter’ elementary school in Orange County, California. One day, another mom angrily accused her of keeping her son waiting during the afterschool pick-up. The confrontation led to the accuser and her husband, a power couple of attorneys, launching a campaign to ruin Peters’ life that included the demand for her dismissal from school volunteering, a lawsuit against her and ultimately her framing for drug possession by planing drugs in her car and reporting her to the police. Peters was arrested and investigated but the truth eventually came out and, after a five-year ordeal, Peters earlier tis year won $5.7 million-dollar civil judgment against the couple.
