Captivating two-part documentary looks at the trial of Clarkson University soccer coach Oral "Nick" Hillary for the 2011 murder of 12-year-old Garrett Phillips - a case that raised questions of racial bias in a small-town community.
The engrossing film chronicles the five years following the murder, as Garrett's family and community relentlessly seek justice for Garrett, and as Nick, who maintains his innocence, fights to clear his name and take back control of his life while raising five children.
S1 E1: Part 1
On the afternoon of October 24, 2011, 12-year-old Garrett Phillips is found mysteriously strangled in his home in Potsdam, New York. Police quickly zeroed in on a suspect in this unthinkable crime: Oral "Nick" Hillary, the ex-boyfriend of Garrett's mother, Tandy Cyrus.
S1 E2: Part 2
With the new DA making it her mission to put Garrett's murderer behind bars, Nick is charged with second degree murder based on testimony given during his civil case. Despite holes in the prosecution's case, both sides prepare for a bench trial without a jury.
