A riveting true story about the crimes of Shelly Chartier, a reclusive young woman from a small Manitoba First Nation who captivated the press and made international headlines. Sensationalised in the media as a high profile catfishing case involving an NBA superstar and an aspiring model, Shelly was portrayed as a master manipulator who used social media as her weapon. Through the sensitive and intelligent lens of directors Lisa Jackson and Shane Belcourt, the sensationalism is swept aside to reveal a much more compelling
– and complex – story of a young woman caught in historical circumstances beyond her control and how she struggles to rebuild her life after incarceration. With in-depth access to Shelly, Indictment unpacks the crime and raises important questions about our justice system.
