Killer by the Lake
Emotional and unsettling French drama in which, 15 years after her childhood friends disappeared, a detective returns to her home town to investigate a similar case
Detective Lise Stocker hears a teenager has vanished from her hometown during a local celebration. Her two best friends disappeared in identical circumstances 15 years earlier. Is there a connection?
The primary suspect in Chloe's disappearance is on the run. Determined to stop history from repeating itself, Lise joins forces with the local police, led by Detective Clovis, to help solve the case.
Remi Bouchard is arrested over Chloe's disappearance, just as he was 15 years earlier. Lise isn't convinced that he's guilty, and he insists that the former investigation against him was biased.
Several locals become suspects in the case. Clovis and Lise's enquiries appear to indicate that Remi Bouchard is telling the truth and the investigation carried out 15 years earlier was falsified.
A major breakthrough in the case occurs and it becomes apparent that the same perpetrator is to blame as 15 years earlier. Remi Bouchard's alibi is solid and Clovis is obliged to release him.
Suspicion begins to point to Chloe's former teacher, Nicolas Mazaud. Was Clovis wrong to release Remi Bouchard, who appears to be one step ahead of everyone in solving the puzzling mystery?
