Adapted from the hit BBC series CRIMINAL JUSTICE, which also inspired the Multi-Emmy award winning HBO drama THE NIGHT OF, this intense crime mystery follows the living nightmare of a young man accused of a murder he couldn’t possibly have committed. Or could he?

Sami is a good guy, adored by his parents, who’ve worked hard to give him the best life possible. A great future lies ahead for him; he just has to reach out and grab it. One night, an unfortunate chain of events and a bad hook-up causes everything to go haywire. An alluring but tortured young woman climbs into his car. She wants to see the ocean and have sex with him. How can he turn her down? But he wakes up to find her lying dead beside him, stabbed to death. Sami is arrested, and his whole life falls apart, dragging his parents down with him. He’s thrown in prison and confined to a tiny cell awaiting trial. Fortunately, he crosses paths with Isabelle Orville, a wry maverick attorney who takes on his case and becomes his only ally in this never-ending nightmare.

Adapted from BBC's "Criminal Justice"
