American exchange student Amanda Knox is convicted and eventually acquitted for the 2007 death of another student in Italy. Was she a cold-blooded psychopath or a naive student abroad trapped in an endless nightmare?
Amanda Knox constantly toys with the idea of viewer perception and pre-conceived notions, knowing that even the smallest glance or crack in one's voice can be interpreted to "prove" innocence or guilt -- depending on what you want to believe.
Eventually, the missing pieces -- and the Amanda Knox case is undoubtedly one of missing pieces -- outshine the compelling elements the doc does provide (again, Amanda Knox! as primary talking head!), leaving audiences only wanting more.
