Synopsis

Based on the true case of Holocaust denier David Irving detailed in Deborah E. Lipstadt's acclaimed book 'Denial: Holocaust History on Trial'.
Lipstadt mounted a legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust Denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused; therefore, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust happened.
