GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT
Based on a true story. Nurse Lucia de B. has been present at one inexplicable death too many, and the hospital alerts the police. A young woman attorney driven by ambition and genuine outrage, gets involved and Lucia is sentenced to life in prison. But something keeps troubling her, and she soon discovers inconsistencies in the witness statements, and suppression of lab evidence that was ignored by her superiors. She teams up with Lucia’s lawyer, but at every appeal the original guilty verdict is confirmed. Things look bleak until they get the media involved and the biggest miscarriage of justice in Dutch history is finally reserved.
