The Appeal

52′ | EN/FR | HD | 2023

Alexandre is back in court for the second time. He is accused of shaking his baby 9 years ago, causing her death. In the first instance, Alexandre was unanimously acquitted. But the public prosecutor’s office appealed, and Alexandre is now awaiting the second trial.

Since the tragedy, his whole life, and his family’s has revolved around legal deadlines. Between fear and determination, he has become the investigator of his own story, fighting for the truth and to prove his innocence.

The camera follows him until The Appeal.
