THE VERDICT [Het vonnis]

Luc, a successful businessman with a loving family, has his life destroyed after a random street crime leads to the deaths of his wife and daughter. Yet due to a procedural error, the perp gets off scot-free and is soon back roaming the streets. Obsessed with bringing the murderer to justice, Luc's life becomes consumed by revenge, not only against the man who killed his family, but the state which devastatingly let him down.
