♦Description : “July 30, 1994. Orphea, a quiet seaside resort in the New York state of the Hamptons, is shocked by an appalling incident: the mayor of the city and his family are murdered at home, as well as a passerby, witness to the murders .
The investigation, entrusted to the state police, is led by a duo of young police officers, Jesse Rosenberg and Derek Scott. Ambitious and tenacious, they will manage to confuse the murderer, solid proofs to support, which will earn them the praise of their hierarchy and even a decoration.
But twenty years later, in early summer 2014, a journalist by the name of Stephanie Mailer tells Jesse that he was guilty of wrongdoing at the time.
Before disappearing in mysterious conditions.
What happened to Stephanie Mailer?
What did she discover?
And above all: what really happened on the evening of July 30, 1994 in Orphea?”
