There he starts a marine conservation trust for False Bay – but life isn't as simple as it seems.

The Curious Case of Natalia Grace 2: Natalia Speaks

Picking up where the shocking finale of The Curious Case of Natalia Grace left off, Natalia Speaks dives headfirst into the questions, controversies and secrets unearthed in the first instalment.

But this time, Natalia shares her side of the story...

The six-part docuseries will also showcase an extensive, emotional sit-down between Natalia and her adoptive father, Michael Barnett, as they sit face-to-face for the first time and come to terms with the accusations that have been thrown around in both directions.

Natalia Speaks retraces her adoption saga and the Barnett's allegations from Natalia's perspective, offering insight into what really went on behind closed doors in the Barnett's home and how much truth there actually is to their claim Natalia was not a six-year-old Ukrainian orphan with a rare genetic disorder, but rather a homicidal adult intent on harming them and their children.

Natalia Speaks also features previously unseen evidence and footage, as well as new theories and testimony from an array of voices.

These include the retired FBI agents who initially investigated Natalia's case, genetic experts who helped determine Natalia's actual age, and the Tippecanoe County Deputy Prosecutor Jackie Starbuck who prosecuted Michael in his October 2022 trial.

In addition, the docuseries sheds light on Natalia's next chapter, offering a portrait of her life with her new adoptive family and exclusive interviews with her adoptive parents, Bishop Antown and Christina Manns.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Age, Rage & The Big Lie": Natalia tries to fill the missing pieces of her life by learning the truth about her age.

Shocking new information exposes the Bennett's lies.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "For The Love of Money": In an explosive confrontation, Natalia demands answers from Michael about their motivations for adopting her.

This show is not just about the highs of newfound wealth but also the humbling reality of losing it all.

Each episode explores the lives of ordinary people who've experienced extraordinary financial twists of fate.

From the exciting freedom of limitless spending to the harsh reality of disappearing fortunes, the show paints a picture of life's unpredictability.

The stories shared are relatable, occasionally humorous, shocking and educational.
