Background Research

The story of Olivia O is set about 6 years ago (2017). I am not an investigative journalist, but I have been (somewhat obsessively) following the excellent reporting of others. I have tremendous respect for journalists and activists who have put their neck on the line and worked tirelessly to get this story out.
