After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes Academy Award winner Frances McDormand makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson , the town's revered chief of police.
