The upcoming docuseries looks at four Mexican men who, after being involved in a car accident, were arrested on charges of kidnapping in 2015.

“A fender bender that turned into a kidnapping case leads documentalist Roberto Hernández to expose the truth behind Mexico’s flawed justice system,” Netflix teases.

Throughout the docuseries, Hernández disentangles the facts around this case and the four apparently unrelated men who he claims were unjustly imprisoned.

“Our justice system, instead of dispensing justice, managed to transform a minor traffic incident into a 50-year prison sentence and I think that is terrifying as a result,” Hernandez says in the show’s opening.

Reasonable Doubt trailer

Netflix released a trailer for Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings at the end of October. However, unfortunately for non-Spanish speakers, it does not come with English subtitles.

The video’s description does give us a bit more detail though, with Netflix writing: “The series shows the setbacks and the outcome of the drama that led to four innocent people being charged with kidnapping after a minor accident on a highway.”
