What is the plotline of Stillwater?
Bill Baker lives in Oklahoma. He traveled to Marseille, France to visit his daughter Allison. Allison is in prison for 9 years. She was convicted of killing her roommate and unfaithful lover, Lina.
Bill met with Allison. She asked him to give a note to her defense lawyer, Mrs. Leparq. Bill found Leparq and she told him about the letter that said that Allison heard from her former professor about a man who claimed to be Lina’s killer. Learn refuses to attempt to reopen the case because the new information is not real evidence. Bill lied to Allison, telling her that Leparq would petition the judge to let him reopen the case.
Bill meets a woman named Virginie and her daughter Maya. He asks Virginie to translate the note for him. Bill visits the professor mentioned in the note, who gives him the phone number of someone who may know Lina’s killer. Bill and Virginie meet with a woman. She tells them the killer’s name is Akim.
Virginie and her friend looked on social media. They printed photos of people who they thought Allison or Lina might know. Bill took the photos to Allison, who recognized Akim from one of them. Bill then found Akim at a housing project using the photo. But Akim’s friends beat him up. Akim escaped. A few days later, Bill said that Leparq agreed to help the police find Akim. But he didn’t tell the police right away. This made Allison mad because it was her one chance to escape from prison. So she told Bill never to come back again.
What are the other details related to the plotline?
Four months later, Bill has not gone back to America. He rented a room in Virginie’s apartment and he works on a construction crew. During Allison’s one free day out of prison that year, Bill and Allison met up and they continued to visit each other regularly. Bill also got together with Virginie. Akim was at the game. Bill followed him in his truck after the game and Bill punched Akim and locked him in the basement of an apartment building where he lives. He told Maya to keep this a secret.
Bill pays a private investigator to test hair from Akim against DNA evidence from the crime scene. Akim tells Bill that Allison had asked him to kill Lina and he had killed her with a necklace that said “Stillwater.” Bill begins to doubt Allison is innocent. Bill might be keeping Akim in the basement.
The private investigator is suspicious so he pretended to be a building inspector and asked Virginie if she had noticed any smells or noises from the basement. She said that she hadn’t, but now she is suspicious of Bill. Police officers find and detain Bill. They searched the basement but did not find a hostage. After that, they asked Maya, who lied about not seeing the hostage before. Virginie had later found Akim in the basement and released him. She was mad at Bill for putting Maya in danger while she had been kidnapped by Akim. When Leparq met with Bill, he told him that a DNA test proved Allison was not guilty. But Bill’s reaction made Leparq feel confused.
