We believe there is a great public interest in this case. – Marcus Szabo, Producer

The summer of 2015 found a man drowned at hjälmaren after having been reported missing by his 42-year-old wife. When the 42-year-old wife would get the life insurance money, suspected the insurance company fraud and notify the police.

The following year, in 2016, the 42-year-old woman’s parents are attacked in their summer cottage next to the lake where the man was found dead.
The 68-year-old father die of their injuries, while the 63-year-old wife survives and says that the assailant was unknown to her.

The police aiming soon in on the 42-year-old daughter and her 18 year old boyfriend.

The 42-year-old woman, who ran a home for refugees, is now not only charged with murder but is also suspected of having carried out the sexual abuse of refugees in her care.

The 42-year-old woman still denies all charges.

The documentary tells about the background of the tragic events and follows the trials. Interviews with people in the woman’s neighborhood interspersed with interviews with authorities and experts involved in the case. The ultimate goal is a meeting with the drama’s protagonist, the 42-year-old woman.
