"That's the one(=DVD) where this man, a car salesman, hires two criminals to kidnap his wife to get money from her rich father."

The above introduces the DVD 'Fargo'. What I couldn't understand is, the meaning of "where". What's the meaning of "where" here? Could you help me with that, please?

Refer to the definition of where as a conjunction - the example phrase could alternatively be written:

That's the one in which this man, a car salesman, hires two criminals to kidnap his wife to get money from her rich father."
