We go to Bari, Italy for this one and meet a lawyer by the name of Guido Guerrieri, who likes to take on a lost cause. This time he meets with a woman who has a complaint against the son of one of the judges in Bari.

This of course is both a legal and moral minefield. It opens up some of the intricacies and worrying gaps in the Italian legal system. Lots of dark themes too such as addiction and domestic abuse.

An interesting premise with added bite.
