In 2009, Guatemalan lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg was murdered. Days after his death, a YouTube video emerged in which a calm Rosenberg made an explosive accusation: “If you are watching this video, it’s because I’ve been murdered by President Alvaro Colom.” The video brought the already crime-racked country to the brink of chaos and ignited riots and protests across Guatemala. As a team of top detectives piece together the case, out tumbles a complex and disturbing love story with a revelation that has left audiences stunned. This is a see-it-to-believe-it story of one man who led a personal crusade in search of justice.
