Synopsis: In France, the Porter family is slaughtered while camping in the woods and only Claire Porter survives seriously wounded. She reports that her husband Henry and her son Peter have been eaten alive by a strong man. The eremite Talan Gwynek that lives in the woods with his mother is arrested by the police accused of being the killer. The defense attorney Kate Moore is assigned to defend Talan and she comes to the police station with her investigator Eric Sarin and the animal expert Gavin Flemyng to interview Talan. The unwilling police inspector Klaus Pistor is sure that Talan is the murderer but has to let Kate and her team work. There is turmoil in the precinct and Gavin is scratched by Talan. Then they visit Talan's mother Mrs. Gwynek and they learn that Talan has a rare disease. Further, the government wants her lands to dispose nuclear waste and her husband has recently died in car accident. Soon Eric discloses that the death of Mr. Gwynek was suspicious and Pistor was in charge of

To be honest,

I'm not convinced

this is an act

of murder at all.

The French legal system

values hard evidence

more than eye

witness testimony.

That nuance is certainly

relevant to this case

and I believe it will

work in our favor.

You're an American living in France,

an expatriate.

Well, um, both my parents

were human rights lawyers.

My father was French,

my mother an American.

When they divorced

I spent every summer

in France with my father.

Mrs. Moore,

were you hesitant to accept this case,

considering the victims are American

and the defendant is French?

What matters to me would be to see

an innocent man sent to prison.


I think we got it.




You look great.

Yeah, you too.

How are you?

I'm good, good.

Mmm. Oh...

Uh, how was your flight?

It was fine.

So, uh...


So you're doing

TV interviews now.

Yeah, I'm not used to that,

that's for sure.

Did I look as nervous

as I felt?

No, you looked like you'd

been doing it for years.

Good. Um...

Oh, here, let's just move out here.


Been a while. So...

Damn, I didn't want

this to be awkward.


Oh, hey.


Mmm. Monsieur?

Oh, shoot, uh, Eric,

this is Dr. Gavin Flemyng.

Kate, come on.

It's Gavin. Gavin.

Oh, okay.

He doesn't

speak French.

- Very well. The Gavin, right?

- Mmm-hmm.

Yeah, I heard a lot about you.

Come on in.

Thanks for

helping out.

Ah, of course. Um...

Didn't realize

you were American as well.

- Do you have a PhD in wildlife forensics?

- Yeah.

Probably just

set up right here.

Kate said you did an amazing

job on a similar case

where you helped

redirect the investigation

from murder

to animal attack?

Oh, no,

he more than helped.

His testimony

was instrumental.


I hope you can do the same for us.
