In 1983 a fifteen-year-old boy was kidnapped and brutally murdered. Seventeen years later, the five men convicted still claim their innocence. This film follows the police investigation and juridical process using the original videotaped reconstructions of the murder performed by the defendants.

Our take

The independent and deeply incisive Israeli documentarian Avi Mograbi ignores the dramatic thrills to emphasize institutional procedure as he re-visits and re-imagines the scene of a terrible crime in this shocking documentary. Was justice served?
