Trapped in a quagmire of uncertainty over his missing daughter, Sheriff Jack Hodgson learns of the brutal killing of a young woman whose badly decomposed body is found in the river. Shocked at the manner of the killing, the Sheriff investigates only to uncover more shocking murders at its helm. As the body count starts to grow, an old murder case draws at the possibility that an innocent person had been hung for the Hendricks murders. Sheriff Hodgson tracks the murderer down but when more people turn up missing, the Sheriff comes to realize that the serial killer was not responsible for all the killing sprees. Directives for Murder highlights the agony of a town seeking to address the wrongful execution of a young man but which is eventually ensnared by the creation of insidious operations aimed at fueling the birth of neo-Nazis in propagating an ideology and way of life that is intolerable and without cause, exacting murders on the innocent and anyone who foils and stumbles on their operations.
