    • Synopsis
    • When two internet obsessed teenagers die in an unexpected fight and the lead suspect disappears, Detective Dalton (40) interrogates Balthazar (17) while technical experts unravel his online history. Meanwhile, teenagers everywhere send in clips, vines and memes to muddy the investigation.

      As Dalton digs, she discovers Julia (16), at the heart of the case, in a coma and whose life is still at risk. While racing against the clock to find the main suspect (Reese), Dalton must contend with her own daughter’s revealing viral video and an Appropriate Adult with his own agenda.

      When Dalton finally learns the truth about Balthazar and Reese, she realizes one of them would do anything for internet fame. Even die. So Dalton manipulates social media to solve the case before it’s too late.
