A true story of an unlikely serial killer. A brilliant biochemistry student who is also a prostitute. A brutally bludgeoned body buried naked in the snow. Thus begins Winter of Frozen Dreams, a sordid love story and a macabre web of blackmail, lust, and deceit. The Hoffman case was the first televised murder trial in US history. The true-life story of Barbara Hoffman, is complex and contradictory in every sense as she was both a brilliant biochemistry student at the University of Wisconsin and Madison's most notorious prostitute. On a frigid, twenty-two below zero Christmas morning, Barbara Hoffman's (Thora Birch) distraught young fiance, Jerry Davies (Brendan Sexton III) leads police investigators to a corpse, which only hours before, he had buried in a snow bank. Lead by Detective Lulling (Keith Carradine), the police investigators uncover the naked and brutally bludgeoned body of Harry Berge. Davies desperately insists that he is not a murderer and that he and Hoffman are guilty only of burying the corpse of a stranger. Shades of film noir blend with true crime, as Barbara Hoffman lives out her days in prison, refusing to give interviews or even go before the parole board.
