In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma.  After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffered automobiles, built mansions and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. When the death toll surpassed more than twenty four, the newly created FBI took up the case and set out to expose one of the most sinister conspiracies in American history.
