A policeman turns sexual predator, and a group of fearless women from around the world band together to bring him to justice. Across continents and years, they launch their own investigation with a team of Italian journalists and trigger a trial unlike any seen in Italian court. Hosted by investigative reporter Natasha Del Toro, this ten-episode, immersive true crime series examines the trust we place in the sharing economy and the power that a simple checkmark or digital review can hold over our lives.
