The Syndrome

A mother of three spent 11 years in prison for killing a baby she never harmed. That's what happens when widely held beliefs based on junk science lead to the convictions of innocent people.

The explosive documentary, The Syndrome, follows the crusade of a group of doctors, scientists, and legalscholars who have uncovered that "shaken baby syndrome," a child abuse theory used in hundreds of prosecutions each year, is not scientifically valid. In fact, they say, it doesn't exist. Filmmaker Meryl Goldsmith and national award-winning investigative reporter Susan Goldsmith document the unimaginable nightmare for those accused and focus on the men and women dedicating their lives to defending the prosecuted and freeing the convicted.
