2 Episodes

Watch the complete mini-series now! | Based on true events, An Innocent Man takes viewers inside a riveting, high-stakes criminal case where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear. It follows the trial and conviction of Leopold Hilsner, of the most harrowing judicial chapters of injustice in Europe. One fateful day a 19-year-old woman is killed, her throat is slashed, and she is assaulted. When there is no viable suspect, authorities and the public start a theory against Hilsner, and with it, a wave of anti-Semitism that marked a dark chapter.

Go back in time to the turn of the 19th century to discover why a man was framed for one of the most heinous murders in history, and why this case was only solved only a century later when nobody could save Hilsner anymore.
