I Didn’t Kill My Sister–Lifetime Movie Synopsis
All of her life Heather has lived in her sister’s shadow. Growing up, it seemed that Carmen had everything–the looks, the smarts, and the talent. Now, Heather is working behind the scenes as Carmen’s assistant at the local news station in California, where Carmen is a television reporter alongside her husband, Mason. But despite Carmen and Mason’s glowing success, their lives are falling apart. Carmen is having problems with her teenage daughter and her husband, who have now drawn closer to Heather.
In a strange twist, it looks like Carmen is the one losing everything as her sister sits back and watches. This goes right in harmony with what Carmen has always believed about Heather—that she wants everything she has including her cars, her money and her family. During the divorce proceedings, Heather tries to remain neutral, despite the couple’s ongoing problems. But when the popular TV news reporter collapses on the patio and is later found dead in the pool at her home, Heather becomes a prime suspect in Carmen’s suspicious death, since investigators know that Carmen and Heather had a huge fight the day that Carmen died.
When Heather realizes that she is the suspect and the story has gone public, labeling her as an unstable woman, she wonders who is feeding the police and the media information about her. In order to find out the truth, She launches her own investigation, which leads back to her brother-in-law, Mason, a man with many secrets that may have everything to do with his wife’s death.
