This time around, the story centers a woman who takes matters into her own hands to find justice after her daughter is murdered and the killer remains at large. Here’s the official synopsis:

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. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” opens on October 13th.
