Women who juggle motherhood, family life and the toughest legal profession
How do you assist rapists, murderers and sex offenders when you know someone did it? It’s a question asked by these six female criminal lawyers on a daily basis. This six-part docu-reality is about how and why they defend the person behind a horrific crime. We follow Sammy (31), Feride (31), Amanda (34), Clarice (41), Maartje (40) and Thirza (31) at work and at home. Do they occasionally struggle with their conscience? Does motherhood have an impact on the work they do? And what does their private life look like if you need to be available to your clients 24/7? Never before has there been a TV show that captured the intriguing world of criminal lawyers up close.
