Johnathan Walton, a TV producer, and Marianne Smyth, an Irish heiress who claims her family is trying to scam her out of her massive inheritance, are best friends. When Smyth is arrested for allegedly embezzling from her employer, Walton sticks by her every step of the way by lending Smyth tens of thousands of dollars to help with legal bills and expenses. Soon afterward, Walton makes the unsettling discovery that Smyth has not been truthful about needing the money or her identity. After an unsuccessful attempt to expose Smyth’s web of lies and scam to the authorities, Walton sets out on his own years-long investigative journey for justice that puts Smyth in jail. The episode includes interviews with Walton as well as Smyth’s former co-workers, friends and partners.
