About the episode[]

The episode is from the American police procedural TV series Cold Case, which premiered on 23 September 2003 on CBS. The series revolves around a fictionalised Philadelphia Police Department in Pennsylvania that specialises in investigating cold cases.

Each episode of Cold Case follows a formula that begins with a flashback scene that establishes the year, sometimes the actual date in which the crime took place, as well as a set of characters in a seemingly mundane situation. These flashbacks feature a different style of direction, whether it be the colors, lighting, shading, or camera angles.

The episode's plot features a 1994 case involving a raped and murdered 16-year-old girl which is re-opened when Det. Jeffries gets a call from a prisoner on death-row, who is scheduled to be executed in just three days.
