Inside the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, a woman is fighting to get the last fugitive war criminals under arrest. They are called Ratko Mladic, Radovan Karadzic, and Ante Gotovina. Her name is Carla Del Ponte. For the very first time, a camera has been allowed behind the scenes of the ICTY, and follows day by day the work of the Attorney General and his team. The journey brings us from The Hague to New York, from Belgrade to Washington, Zagreb or Luxemburg, in a thrilling atmosphere of manhunt, gambling and risk. We follow her quest between truth and lies, between success and deceived hopes, fake news, and lobbying.
