Synopsis

Nick Broomfield directs this documentary which focuses on the serial killer dubbed the 'Grim Sleeper', who is alleged to have murdered at least ten victims over 25 years in South Los Angeles. The case came to a close in 2010 with the arrest of 57-year-old Lonnie Franklin, shortly after he resumed his killing spree following an apparent 14-year hiatus. Through interviewing victims and those close to the crimes, over two decades after the initial investigation first began, the documentary examines the reasons behind the LAPD's long, unfruitful pursuit of a suspect and what measures they have since taken to rectify their mistakes.
