Emma is a young lawyer and the daughter of a former manager working for a diamond-mining company. During her childhood, a rebel movement broke out and occupied the mining areas. Facing the atrocities committed by the rebels, Emma and her family were forced to flee. Years later, she is asked to defend Blackshouam, one of the war criminals from the rebellion. Her instinct pushes her to refuse the advocacy. Is it right to defend one’s own tormentor? Is it possible to save an ex-child soldier who only knows violence? Driven by the ideal of justice, she accepts the case, at the expense of her own life and career.
