PITCH

In September 1986, two children were brutally killed in the suburbs of Metz. This is the beginning of “The Patrick Dils Affair”, one of the most emblematic judicial errors in the annals of French justice. Beyond the miscarriage of justice, it is above all the story of a struggle. The struggle of a mother who becomes a warrior in the face of the judicial machine, and the struggle of a teenager (Patrick was only 16 at the time) who, after 15 years in jail, will emerge, strong, as a man.
