Irene, an intelligent 45-year-old lawyer, runs a law firm in Rome together with her colleague Giulia and aspiring lawyer Alice. She's totally devoted to her 14-year-old son Lorenzo, who has never really recovered from the separation from his father, a famous conductor. In the course of her professional activities Irene gets to know charming public prosecutor Sandro Gruber, who falls in love with her. Irene needs all her strength for her depressive son, and fights her feelings for Sandro as best she can. When Sandro succeeds in gaining Lorenzo's trust, however, he finally manages to win Irene's heart too. Irene's work as a lawyer continually confronts her with difficult cases in which helpless women fall victim to violent husbands, unscrupulous doctors or misguided justice. Unshakably ambitious, Irene helps the women to gain the rights they deserve.Written by
Back in the time when the definition "special victims unit" had not leaped from courtroom papers to the silver screen, an enterprising group of TV producers in Italy came up with the idea of dramatizing some of the intriguing cases that the renowned attorney and politician Tina Lagostena Bassi, a champion of abused women's rights in the male-dominated Italian courtrooms wrote about in her books.
The result is a gripping six episodes mini-series where a combative woman lawyer fights her good fight on behalf of women and children victims of abuses, trying to juggle her work and her personal life, fighting back her feelings for a charming prosecutor and trying to forget the ghosts haunting her from her childhood.
