Dig A Little Deeper is an original musical thriller, based on the true events surrounding the discovery of several bodies in the backyard of a Sacramento boarding house. When Tammy, a young rookie cop, brings a homeless man, Clay, to the boarding house of Martine Blanquet, she thinks she has found the perfect place for him. But we soon discover Martine is fiercely protective of the home she has made for her motley bunch of boarders, and that she is much more than the sweet, kind woman that she seems. As the bond between Clay and Martine grows tighter and more and more boarders go mysteriously missing, will Tammy be able to save Clay from the imminent danger she has put him in - or will it be too late?
