Lea’s father Julien is in police custody for lying about his alibi and refusing to give his actual whereabouts on the night of his daughter’s disappearance. Molina and Camille discover that Lea has been introduced to single-seater racing, but wonder how she managed to pay for lessons.
Set in Lyon, the show traces the increasing trauma of the Morel family who fall apart when their 17-year-old daughter fails to return home from a night out.
