Inspired by a newspaper article from 2005, directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos have spent the last decade documenting an unprecedented real-life thriller that spans more than thirty years. Set in America’s Heartland, Making a Murderer follows the harrowing story of Steven Avery, an outsider from the wrong side of the tracks, convicted and later exonerated of a brutal assault. His release triggered major criminal justice reform legislation, and he filed a lawsuit that threatened to expose corruption in local law enforcement and award him millions of dollars. But in the midst of his very public civil case, he suddenly finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime.

Great docu-series showing true small town corruption against a family. Worth also to look up interviews of family surrounding.

Such a great show. It further adds weight to the old adage that the best stories are the true ones. I had to keep reminding myself whilst watching that this is real life, that this actually happened and that these people are in prison as I type this and almost certainly as you read this.
