This is the definitive documentary of Europe’s most sensational murder case.
Shot on location over the course of 7 years in London, Perugia, Florence and Seattle, employing unique cinematographic visuals such as aerial drone footage of the crime scene, the film contrasts the ancient and mysterious atmosphere of Perugia with the modern steel and glass of Seattle and London. It takes a broad, balanced view of the investigation and trials, putting key aspects in context through interviews with journalists who covered the case from the beginning and the magistrates who personally handled the investigation. The raw emotion and grief of the British victim's family contrasts with the polished American public relations machine defending Amanda Knox. A prominent African American journalist addresses the troubling race factors that cloud the point of view of Rudy Guede.
