Television journalist Bas Haan creates his own monster when, in his investigation into the Deventer murder case, he is increasingly driven into the camp by those who accuse “the handyman” of murder. The result is a media witch-hunt that turns the life of ‘the handyman’ and his wife into a true nightmare. Stunned by this ‘trial by media’ Bas decides to fight the conspiracies with the facts, but to his frustration the image appears to be stronger than reality. He goes to great lengths to uncover the truth: has anyone been wrongly convicted by the judge or is there actually an innocent victim?

Based on the book ‘De Deventer moordzaak, het complot ontrafeld’ written by Bas Haan.
