Plot edit

The series is inspired by a real event[2] and by a podcast of the same name.[3] by investigative reporter Magdalena Sodomková and documentarian Brit Jensen.

Journalist Sodomková is contacted by prisoner Tomáš Toman from Indonesian prison. He was arrested as a fugitive from justice as he was convicted of killing one man. However, he claims that he did not commit the crime for which he has served 12.5 years. According to him, he was sent to prison by a questionable opinion of a forensic expert Kraus who is nicknamed the Mathematician of Crime. Journalist Sodomková gradually gets into Toman's case and discovers that many things are not right. The question remains whether she can believe Toman's version of events, especially given that he has been punished for similar activity in the past.
