"This is a riveting true story about a reclusive young woman from a small Manitoba First Nation who made international headlines. Shelly Chartier was portrayed by the media as a master manipulator who used social media to target an NBA superstar and an aspiring model. Through the sensitive and intelligent lens of Indigenous directors Lisa Jackson and Shane Belcourt, the sensationalism is swept aside to reveal something much more compelling and complex — the story of a young woman caught in historical circumstances beyond her control and how she struggles to rebuild her life after incarceration. Indictment raises important questions about the Canadian justice system, the Gladue Principle and sentencing of Indigenous offenders." NFB
