Burden of Truth is an investigative drama about life-altering legal cases. Fast-rising corporate attorney Joanna Hanley returns to her small hometown of Millwood - a prairie town with an industrial past and uncertain future - to represent a major client in a case against some sick high school girls. She dispatches her case quickly and efficiently, crushing the girls and their small-town lawyer - her former high school classmate Billy Crawford. After winning her case, she discovers the girls are sicker than anyone thought. Otherwise healthy young women have been overcome with uncontrollable twitches and seizures, making life unlivable. They need help. Joanna also realizes she may have unresolved personal business in town. Even though she's a successful partner in a big law firm, she can't ignore the feeling that something in her life is not right. She becomes convinced all the answers she's seeking about her broken life can be found in her old hometown. And if she's going to fix herself, she has to start where it all began - with uncovering all of her family's deepest secrets.
Stuck in Millwood without a case and no longer having a firm to return home to, Joanna is at loose ends on what to do next. While she toys with the idea of taking an offer at another firm, Billy works to get their case reinstated without much success.
New leads bring Joanna and Billy to make the horrific discovery of a massive dumpsite on farmland near the school. Joanna's father takes over as lead counsel and it becomes clear that they're running out of time.
With Joanna disqualified and the clock running out on Billy, who'll have to face Joanna's father alone, Joanna must think outside the box if they want to win this.
Using the law to her advantage, Joanna gets herself reinstated on a technicality and plays her trump card. When it isn't enough to elicit a settlement offer, Joanna makes things personal.
