A psychological drama about a young, female lawyer who has been appointed a case that no one else wants - defending a rebel soldier. In an un-named African country plagued by civil war, both lawyer and defendant are scarred by growing up in a world devastated by cyclical violence. These two profoundly different individuals meet, clash and need to find a way to understand each other. As resistance from her colleagues and family mounts, the young lawyer becomes even more determined to stand up for her client’s rights to a fair trial.
