About

This premium limited series for Netflix charts the story of Sophie Toscan du Plantier’s life and rigorously details the investigation into her tragic death in 1996, exposing the enduring mysteries at the heart of this case. The murder, which became a national obsession in Ireland and France, has been surrounded by controversy from the outset, leaving a prime suspect who was never tried in Ireland but who has been found guilty in the court of public opinion - and a family in search of justice for nearly a quarter of a century. This is the only documentary project ever to have been given the blessing of Sophie’s family and to be made with their full co-operation.
