When teenager Lara is found hanged at the local ballet school it is assumed that she committed suicide; detective Gabríela believes there is more to it than that and starts digging into the girl's life. She isn't the only person investigating; Lara's parents have employed a lawyer to look into the case. As the series progresses it becomes apparent there are a lot of very unpleasant things going on; a pair of boys are posting videos of girls having sex onto the internet, a ballet teacher who bullies his students and gives them drugs, an adoptive father who clearly has something to hide and some young men who are getting teenage girls hooked on drugs before forcing them into prostitution.

Why men should not direct work about men exploiting/abusing women
13 March 2018 | by maggiegreenwaldSee all my reviews

With the best of intentions, the director of this series cannot escape his own male gaze. As each man is revealed to be an abuser, the director shows us this by exploiting the women all over again. Starting with one of the earliest shots in the film, the director exploits and abuses the young victim whose death is at the center of the series, by showing her dead body completely naked. She is supposed to be 14 years old and the victim of numerous men who have or want to sexually abuse her. Including one low angle shot with her naked, dead breast in the foreground. The clueless director has no awareness of how to direct this material without actually exploiting the victimized women. Only one hot young man is shown naked. Every other young girl, 14 year olds, 18 year olds, is filmed naked and degraded in the presence of abusive men who are fully clothed. It's time for TV and cinema producers to stop participating in the abuse of women by hiring male directors who do not understand how to expose exploitation without re-exploiting. Baldvin Z's show, Trapped was wonderful, with a great characterization of the principal male, character. In Case, even the side-kick male detective is more interesting to the creators and director than the protagonist - a woman. The actress is incredibly interesting looking, a powerful, not-pretty presence, with not much personality. In addition to no personal life, the writers and director were unable to create an inner life for Gabriela. The side-kick, a nebbish of a partner, HOgni turns out to be a brilliant painter, with the most telling character-defining scene being dinner at his home with his astonishing wife and HUGE male canvases. Too bad this powerful story turns itself into a victim of the male abuse it is attempting to indict.
