Exposing a serious flaw in Belgium’s justice system, The Verdict is a gripping courtroom thriller about morality, ethics and heart-breaking legal loopholes. Businessman Luc engages in a fight with the state when his wife’s murderer is released due to a procedural error. Despondent and infuriated, Luc decides to take the law into his own hands. After dispensing his own form of justice, Luc transforms his subsequent trial into a modern-day circus. His plan: to expose the failures of the judicial system to a jury of the people and arouse their outrage.
