Director Jim Sheridan begins his present day investigation in the Irish countryside exactly where French film producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered in 1996.
Jim interviews the witness that first tipped the police off about the crime; Ian Bailey, the first journalist to arrive at the scene of Sophie's murder, becomes a key suspect early on in the investigation.
Jim dives deeper into the circumstances surrounding the police's investigation into Sophie's murder as the case is riddled with false leads and changing witness statements; officials make zero arrests despite having over 50 suspects.
The French authorities take over the case and ignite a cultural and judicial battle as they base their entire investigation around Ian Bailey.
After 24 years of suspicion, the French authorities put Ian Bailey on trial in absentia for Sophie's murder; Jim conducts a unique cross-examination.
