Cute and innocent, 10-year-old Jasmine is the town’s youth reporter for the Whitley Street online blog and weekly newspaper. After expressing interest in her father’s detective career, Dan (Jasmine’s father) brings cold cases to Jasmine for her to ‘crack the case’ and teach her techniques to solve crimes. He assigns her a cold case to solve and encourages her to present the evidence to his partner, Laura. Things turn sour when Jasmine is cyberbullied from followers claiming the case she’s reporting is fake and she should “play with dolls rather than attempt to solve crimes.” To regain her credibility, Jasmine takes fate into her own hands by murdering her babysitter using the fake cold case as her guide. When she realizes what she’s done, it’s too late – the police arrive. Jasmine attempts to take her own life before being taken into custody to live a life in jail.
