She has a deep understanding of the complexity of the prison system and the Brazilian system, where so many are abandoned without proper assistance.

While on this dangerous journey, Heloísa must deal with a childhood trauma buried in her memory, which could reveal a painful family secret. In the search not only for the truth of what happened in her new client’s case, but also for the mysteries of her own family’s crimes, the lawyer must decide whether to cross the line that separates the right to a defense and an unforgivable crime.
