    • Synopsis
    • Two nine-year-old girls report a flasher to the police even though they never saw him. They condemn an innocent man.
      Three filmmakers meet the only residents of a deserted village - an elderly brother and sister who have stopped talking to each other many years ago.
      Retired cleaning women are found raped and strangled in a small town. The DNA leads to a journalist who was reporting on the murders. Did he kill by night, write by day ? Three days after his arrest, he is found in his cell, his head in a bucket of water. Was it suicide or murder ?
      Every story is true.
