A contemporary reflection
This new Israeli series, directed by Ofir Lobel, seeks to find the perpetrators of a shooting that left four students dead. The series takes place the day after the murder and follows the police officer responsible for the investigation. If the first clues tend to incriminate three men of Palestinian origin, investigator Rami Davidi, played by Guri Alfi, is not convinced of their guilt.
During the investigation, the police officer will use questionable methods to discover that the attackers are hiding among the students or teachers. Rami Davidi must therefore find the perpetrators of the shooting among the 421 suspects in the school. Blackspace is not only the title of the series, but also the name of the social network where the students chat. The police will also find a lot of evidence of the killing on this platform.
