What would you do if you saw a stranger die? In August 2000, Liza Balkan witnessed the beating death of a man during an altercation with the police in the west end of Toronto. Called to the witness stand, Balkan kept careful track of the aftermath, then turned verbatim court transcripts, audio, video and text derived from interviews with top lawyers from both sides of the bench, into Out the Window.

Strikes a nerve
