What is the series "When They See Us" about?

The series is based on real events that took place in 1989 in Central Park in New York, USA. Five dark-skinned Latino men were falsely accused of raping a "white" woman in a public place. In four episodes, screenwriter Ava DuVernay was able to fit the entire plot of the case: from the moment of arrest to their release and acquittal in 2002. This falsification not only took 13 years of the young men's lives but also ruined their future success.
