Camera Justitia

The beautiful young Dolores is the only indicted suspect for the murder of her best friend. Her family and friends do everything they can to help her prove her innocence, but as the trial moves forward and pressure grows, suspicion and secrets emerge within the family.

Dolores lived the life of a higher-class student until her best friend was found brutally murdered. Two years later, she’s the only indicted suspect for a crime that attracts a lot of media attention and has placed her in the center of the public eye. Despite the lack of evidence, Dolores is already convicted by the media and has become a pariah in the local community. As the trial moves forward and pressure grows, suspicion and secrets emerge within the family. Cornered, increasingly isolated and just when any mistake could prove disastrous, Dolores puts the entire strategy at risk. Thrilling courtroom drama about the impact of media and social networks on the lives of those involved in a trial.
