Judge Marie Tuma sets out to uphold justice where society have succumbed to greed. When war hero and former minister Fatmir Limaj faces judge Marie Tuma in a prestigious international corruption trial, she is confronted by doubtful witnesses, political pressure, and erratic surroundings. Along the way the truth becomes increasingly blurred, as the determined Fatmir Limaj challenges every preconception of the case. This is a tale about justice, corruption and the road to a newborn nation.
