Assassins is a jaw dropping documentary that would seem far-fetched if it were fiction. CCTV footage appears to reveal conclusive evidence in the murder of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un’s half brother Kim Jong-nam in a Malaysian airport, implicating two young women as the assassins. The shocking event sparks a captivating global investigation but the official story doesn’t seem to make sense. Ryan White’s forensic documentary goes way beyond the headlines, investigating a wider conspiracy with staggering implications, not least for two young women now on death row.
