24 year old Claire Murray’s desperate search for a life-saving second liver transplant becomes a trial by national media, which depicts her as an ungrateful junkie who recklessly destroyed her first transplant by relapsing into drug use. She is condemned by the public…
But what the public doesn’t know is that Claire has a terrible secret: a horrific crime that remains unsolved. Catholic institutional obstruction, medical negligence, missing police records, and trial by mainstream and social media, are all at play in this heartbreaking and gripping real-life drama. Poignant and profoundly disturbing – the final revelation stuns.
This story opens our eyes to the impacts of universal social injustices and prejudices that could befall anyone and anybody’s daughter.
