Unbelievable, episode 3, on Netflix.
Content warning: This series deals with rape and sexual violence and the questioning of victims in the aftermath. I’ve chosen episode 3 as the set screening as it is somewhat less confronting than the first two episodes (it focuses more on the detectives and the investigation rather than questioning the victims in detail as the first two episodes do), but please be aware of the subject matter and proceed accordingly.
you dont have to watch it, you might want to check out the summaries of the episodes on Wikipedia to give you a better idea of what’s going on.
