Shower leak coming from behind wall

Please forgive me in advance. At my In-laws and they have a step in shower that is, my guess, made of plasic and glass. Put the base in, glue the walls on, add the glass walls(up front) and add the glass door.

The walls meet the base and overlap so the water hits the wall and runs to the drainage. The entire shower is caulked. After taking a shower, about a minute, water appears from behind the wall using the "track" behind the wall and base using gravity to drain. The wall and floor are on the lowest point. The only things we've currently discovered is that the leak happens after the shower is shut off.

What a horrible description, please feel free to ask questions for clarification.

Welcome to the forums.

Well....... it's not horrible but it's hard to picture. Can you shoot a picture or two and post them here for us ?

Here's the shower. Plastic type material that's glued onto the walls. The leak is in the corner and the water travels where the plastic wall meets the base behind the caulk. Leaking starts approximately 1 minute after the shower is turned off.
