In the late summer of 1892, Lizzie Borden was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe. Testimonies were muddled, evidence was incomplete, and Lizzie was acquitted. LIZZIE delves into the mysterious mind of Lizzie Borden and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, overwhelming oppression ,and madness. By her side is her older sister Emma, maid Bridget, and neighbor Alice. Together, the four women create a punk rock score to tell the story of why Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks, and why when she saw what she had done, gave her father 41.

À la fin de l’été 1892, Lizzie Borden est accusée du meurtre de son père et de sa belle-mère avec une hache. Les témoignages étaient confus, les preuves étaient incomplètes et Lizzie a été acquittée. LIZZIE plonge dans l’esprit mystérieux de Lizzie Borden et spécule sur les motivations qu’elle a pu avoir : perte d’héritage, antécédents d’abus sexuels, oppression écrasante et folie. À ses côtés se trouvent sa sœur aînée Emma, la femme de chambre Bridget et la voisine Alice. Ensemble, les quatre femmes créent une partition punk rock pour raconter l’histoire de pourquoi Lizzie Borden a pris une hache et a donné 40 coups à sa mère, et pourquoi quand elle a vu ce qu’elle avait fait, elle en a donné 41 à son père.
