In the trailer, we see police and volunteers initiating a search operation to find Rocio. However, things went really haywire when her body was found three weeks after she went missing. The clip also shows the desperation of the Spanish police authority to find the culprit even when they did not have any solid evidence against her.
Dolores Vázquez was put into jail for Rocio’s murder and her alibi was not taken into account. She was sent to prison for a crime she never committed.
