    It turns out to be only the tip of the iceberg of a much more dramatic story, leading to charges of pedophilia and conspiracy to murder. We follow the investigation and the trial of this unusual case through two Danish journalists who help The Hawks, a special unit in the South African police force, as they discover controversial photos, videos of a circumcision and the translation of Frederiksen’s revealing diaries. During the two year-long period of investigation, this true crime documentary has extraordinary access to the evidence in the case and to the main characters.
