How could one woman steal $53 million without anyone noticing? As city comptroller of Dixon, Ill., Rita Crundwell stole $53 million of public funds in 20 years — making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing and neglect of public infrastructure. The film investigates her crime, her lavish lifestyle and the town she left in her wake.
