Late at the office party, you're chatting to two female colleagues. You've never spoken before, but suddenly you're talking in hushed voices about Jamie, co-partner and 'golden boy' of the firm. About what he does to women. You all agree something must be done.
The next day though, you're not so sure. After all, these situations are complicated, easily misinterpreted. Could there be another side to the stories your colleagues told? Was your own story quite as black and white as you claimed?
But things have already escalated. And now the police are involved. They're calling Jamie 'the victim', but that's all wrong. Jamie is the guilty one.
Isn't he . . . ?
