When senior crown prosecutor Janet King (Marta Dusseldorp, A Place to Call Home, Jack Irish) returns from maternity leave, she is thrust into the spotlight on a controversial case involving a senior-ranking police officer. While building cases around a series of suspects, King clashes with Owen Mitchell (Damian Walshe-Howling, The Reef), a cunning colleague who will do anything to win. She also contends with Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Vince Colosimo, The Great Gatsby), who has strong convictions about the direction of the investigations and regularly challenges her authority.
As King makes connections between seemingly unrelated crimes, she unearths a scandal that could damn both the police and the judiciary—and put herself and her family in danger. Dusseldorp delivers an award-winning performance as a brilliant “crownie” struggling to balance life at home with her commitment to her job in this multifaceted courtroom drama.
