David Szach, a nineteen-year-old, suffers a terrible miscarriage of justice when in 1979 he is sentenced to life for the murder of lawyer Derrance Stevenson. After 14 years he is unexpectedly released. He straightaway sets about clearing his name, but, despite flawed forensic evidence presented by the forensic pathologist at his trial, there is no legal avenue to re-open his case. Then in 2013, forensic follies in South Australia involving the same pathologist come to light and spark law reform.
