Though their daughter Connie has confessed to the deed, Margo steps forward to assert Connie's innocence.

And the truth comes out. But with deadly consequences. The Chiselers was loosely inspired by a film that was loosely inspired by a book that was loosely inspired by actual events. This Sirk-soaked tale of murder, ambition and ice sculpture asks larger questions about the importance of family, love and art and doesn't bother to wait around for the answers. How far will they go to get what they want? Find out for yourself. Come and meet The Chiselers.
