DC Jo Boden was eleven years old when her older sister, Sarah, was brutally murdered during her first year at University. Her boyfriend, Nathan Wade, was convicted of the killing.

Now, sixteen years later, Wade is being released on licence and documentary film-maker, Briony Rowe, says she can prove his innocence.

Jo grew up believing her sister was perfect in every way, but even she starts to question the evidence which put Wade behind bars. And perhaps Sarah harboured some dark secrets of her own.
