For 5 years, director Samuel Collardey covered in exclusivity a long-drown-out criminal case in South Florida that deeply shook the public opinion in the United States.
This immersive investigation and compelling story with all its twists and turns in search of the truth, unfolds over 6 episodes taking us at the heart of the judicial system.
On September 8, 2014 the lifeless body of Jill Halliburton Su, great-niece of an oil tycoon and wife of a professor at the University of Florida, is found in her house located in a residential area of the town of Davie, near Fort Lauderdale, FL.
A few hours later, Justin Su discovers his mother’s body in the bathtub. The young man is considered the number 1 suspect by the investigators before DNA is detected on a knife found on the crime scene.
The DNA matching tests lead to Dayonte Resiles - nicknamed Moochie - a 21-year-old African-American known to the police, for burglary, but with no record of violence.
The series takes us behind closed doors with the Defense Lawyers team as they try to avoid the death penalty for their client. On the way we meet the prosecutor convinced of Dayonte's guilt, and Dayonte’s girlfriend - Crystal - who, out of love, finds herself in prison... And at the heart of the case an ambivalent character, alternately charming or disturbing: Moochie, who claims his innocence and is ready to prove it by any means possible.
As the case unfolds the flaws of the US judicial system and DNA sample analyses and their reliability are being questioned. is Moochie innocent or guilty? What will the verdict of the jurors be?
This case conveys a desperate quest for truth and closure which keeps viewers going until the last minute
