Shadow of Truth: The Verdict

Shadow of Truth: The Verdict

In the winter of 2006 13-year-old Tair Rada was found dead inside a locked toilet stall at her school on the northern tip of Israel. A week later the police arrested Roman Zdorov, a Ukrainian Immigrant, who had worked there as a temp, and eventually he confessed to the murder. But many still believed he was innocent, and had their own theories as to
what had happened that day. “Shadow of Truth” is a Rashomon-like exploration of this murder mystery, which raises serious questions regarding the Israeli justice system and its ability to reach the truth. Five years after the first season aired, the supreme court ordered a re-trial and released Zdorov to his home. The new and final episode follows the re-
trial and tells the story for the first time from Zadorov’s perspective.
