The Night Of
Nasir “Naz” Khan is a 20-something University student living in New York. One night he takes his father’s taxi to go to a party. Along the way he meets a beautiful young woman, Andrea, and his plans change. They go back to her place and after a night of drugs and passion, Naz wakes up to find Andrea dead, stabbed to death. Naz panics and flees the scene, only to be picked up by the police for a traffic offence. ULtimately Naz ends up at the police station, where the police then realise they have the prime suspect in a murder, and Naz is held for questioning. On the case is the methodical, perceptive Detective Sergeant Box. Box builds a compelling case against Naz and arrests him for Andrea’s murder. Also on the scene is small-time lawyer John Stone who convinces Naz to hire him. However, the weight of evidence against Naz is massive and John Stone may be out of his depth.
