    Great Documentary!!
    This documentary chronicle the case of Kim Jong Nam murder. It focus on the fate of the two women charged with the murder, presenting the defenses for both women from their legal representatives.

    These women are foreigners in Malaysia, who took part in action that resulted in death of a prominent North Korean figure. They were arrested and held at Malaysian prison for almost 2 years while their case is being trial, if found guilty is punishable with death sentence by hanging.

    This documentary is not too heavy and complicate, I find it very easy to digest. I would've like if it to cover more about Kim Jong Nam, but it does the job well to tell the stories of these women.

    A very emotional journey and surprising twist in the end. It shows a realistic look into the justice system in Malaysia, how it is easily manipulated by its government. I have no doubt this documentary present the truth of what happened.

    It is an eerie reminder of how human life meant so little to big powers and government.
