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.
Joanna and Billy face a verdict in their first case, but when they return to Millwood for a high school reunion, an old friend from Joanna's past suffers a devastating loss that forces Joanna to face long-buried demons from her past.
Reeling from the sudden apprehension of Kodie's children by Millwood Family Services, Joanna sets out to win back custody, but in order to win in court, she must conduct a thorough and potentially revealing investigation into her old friend's life.
After losing at the custody hearing, Joanna is desperate to help Kodie and recklessly launches an emergency challenge to the court-appointed custodian.
With no hope left in the judicial system, Kodie snatches her kids and goes on the run. With all of Millwood Police looking for her and with the imminent threat of a province-wide Amber Alert, Joanna must track Kodie down first in order to have any chance at saving her custody case.
With more potential cases of wrongful child apprehensions, Joanna and Billy investigate Millwood Family Services and discover a potential error in the custody hearing evidence.
In an attempt to build a case against ClearDawn labs for the wrongful apprehension of children in Millwood, Joanna reluctantly agrees to try to put together a class-action lawsuit. Billy gets a tip from his father about a potential break in the case.
Coming off the loss of class certification, Joanna and Billy decide to go after ClearDawn alone with an unreliable whistleblower as their only lead. Luna goes to extreme lengths to save another child from a wrongful apprehension.
Joanna and Billy head to trial against ClearDawn labs while still desperately searching for a way to expose the fraudulent science used to wrongfully apprehend children.
