Whistle-Blower Metta de Noo, who spent years trying to prove that Lucia was innocent, was disappointed with the outcome of this movie. In an interview with RTV Oost she stated that the case was way more complex than is shown in the movie. It's striking that in the movie the real life whistle-blowers are replaced with a fictitious young female character who worked at the OM. The 'fictitious young character at the OM' is an amalgam of Metta de Noo (and her brother) and a real-life but never identified OM-staffmember, who called Lucia's lawyer. The call boiled down to: "Your client is in prison. But we were wrong. We made a mistake." Unfortunately, there is only 90 minutes to tell a story - and to tell it in a dramatically satisfying way, so some of the (complex) elements are lost.

Goofs
The movie takes place in 2001 but when Lucia's colleagues talk to the police about her, a computer monitor clearly shows the Microsoft Windows Aero interface which wasn't available until Windows Vista was released in 2006. The screen, however, looks more like Windows 7 which did not release before 2009.
