Sophie’s brutal murder in one of the most beautiful and remote regions of Ireland shocked the country in 1996.

Over the next two and a half decades, the story became a national obsession in both Ireland and France.

With access both to the victim's family and those involved in the story, this series unravels an extraordinary story.

According to Netflix, it offers a unique window into the ongoing battle to find justice for Sophie.

Sophie’s family contributed to the making of the three part series, including her son Pierre-Louis Baudey.

The residents of the small Cork town of Schull and the local press also took part.

A French man talks, and his words are translated on screen, "The person who did this will have to take responsibly."

"No witness and no DNA. All we had was substantial evidence," another voice is heard saying.

Following calls for justice, a man appears on screen and asks, "But would it bring peace?"

"You don't get justice with the death of your daughter," he says.

Sophie: A Murder in West Cork is from Oscar winning producer of Searching for Sugar Man and Man on Wire, Simon Chinn.
