Early one morning, in December 2005, the lives of two drunken youths intersected for a few moments. The result was devastating. One was soon dead. The other faced a murder charge. The evidence was clear. The attack was unprovoked. There were witnesses and there was a confession. All that remained was for Jonathan Little to face trial for killing David Stevens. But Jonathan Little was acquitted. He walked from court a free man with an unblemished record. Australian Story follows the journey of David Stevens' sister as she gathers herself up from her initial anger and distress at the verdict. Families of victims of homicide are now mobilising and helping to lead a two-pronged attack to change the law and educate the community. As the campaign gains traction, there's a sudden twist. Jonathan Little finds himself in court again. Written by Australian Story
