But as we become aware of the private doings of Laura's friends and relatives in Twin Peaks, it is evident that the residents of this town are on a bad trip... and Laura is the baddest trip of all. In one week, Laura will be found dead. Wrapped in plastic. Find out what happened in her last seven days in Twin Peaks. Population 51,201." (Official Synopsis)
