    Audrey Edmunds, spent 11 years in prison for killing a baby.  What happens when widely held beliefs based on junk science lead to convictions of innocent people? THE SYNDROME is an explosive documentary following the crusade of a group of doctors, scientists, and legal scholars who have uncovered that Shaken Baby Syndrome, a child abuse theory responsible for prosecutions each year in the US, is not scientifically valid. They say, it does not even exist.
