Pitch Perfect: “Directed by Gianluca Maria Tavarelli (The Young Montalbano, Maltese), Standing Tall is a powerful crime series that follows a former policeman’s unofficial investigation into his son’s death, whom he hadn’t seen for years. A painful redemption to reclaim a bond that not even death can break. A father and a son.” —Sebastian Krekeler, ZDF Enterprises
