The limited event series On Death Row: The Pablo Ibar Story arrives this week at SBS On Demand
The dead bodies of a man and two women turn up in a house in a quiet Miami neighbourhood. Their bodies are riddled with bullets.
The police find a video camera at the crime scene containing a recording of the murder. This recording will serve as the main evidence in the investigation – the blurred face of one of the assailants can be seen in the footage.
Three weeks later in a police station in a different district, an officer sees Pablo Ibar (Miguel Ángel Silvestre), a Spaniard detained over an armed altercation and thinks he recognises him from the blurred face in the video. However, Pablo swears he had nothing to do with the murder.
None of the evidence found at the scene of the crime is conclusive or incriminating but this makes no difference. Pablo Ibar is tried and sentenced to death. This is the story of a family that refused to give up. The 25-year fight of a man to prove his innocence.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
