What is Netflix’s true crime doc Girl in the Picture about?


- Advertisment -

Skye Borgman is stepping behind the camera once again for a true crime documentary at Netflix, this time titled Girl in the Picture. You might have seen Borgman’s previous investigative doc, Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix or Dead Asleep, which is streaming on Hulu. I wasn’t really a fan of Dead Asleep, but Abducted in Plain Sight was plenty compelling.

Borgman’s latest, Girl in the Picture is about the mysterious circumstances surrounding Sharon Marshall’s life and death. As a kid, Sharon’s father Franklin Floyd toted her around the country, constantly changing their names and even going so far as to take her to strip clubs so she could make money for him. Sharon was a bright teenager and her father a dark force that preyed on her.

Floyd was a known fugitive and felon. His lies started coming to light in 2002 when journalist Matt Birkbeck found a photograph of Sharon and him together. Birkbeck felt that something was off about the photo and starts his investigation from there.

Birkbeck has since written two non-fiction books about this case and they serve as the basis for this documentary, which he executive produces. Birkbeck also previously wrote about Robert Durst and the disappearance of Kathie Durst.

What is Girl in the Picture about?

A mystery spanning 30 years, Girl in the Picture digs into the truth behind the identity of Sharon Marshall. The documentary will reveal disturbing new layers to the crime beginning with a woman dying roadside, leaving behind a son, a man claiming to be her husband, and a bizarre turn in the case.

As mentioned above, Franklin Floyd was a fugitive for over a decade. He had a history of violence and the trailer states that he robbed at least one bank. His daughter, Sharon Marshall, was a studious girl with aspirations of becoming an aerospace engineer and going to Georgia Tech, but then she got pregnant and things changed quickly after that.

The full story will be explored in the doc, you can watch the trailer above.

What is Girl in the Picture rated?

Given the subject matter, it should not come as much of a surprise that this documentary is rated TV-MA for language and smoking. This doc is for mature audiences and might not be suitable for children 17 and under.

Streaming July 6, 2022 on Netflix.
