Alleluia is the adaptation of a crime spree that shook the United States from 1947 to 1949. It's the story of Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez: a young nurse places a "lonely hearts" ad and meets a gigolo who steals from widows.

She falls in love with him, abandons her children and holds onto her precarious existence until the story turns to tragedy...
