A series of documentaries telling the story of six lawyers and their clients who have to appeal to pro bono legal counsel because they can’t afford a lawyer. Each case is followed from the beginning to the end. Tough, honest portraits of offenders, their families and their lawyers. Reports of anger, poverty and regret. Reports of chances, choices and the lack of both. A penetrating look into a world and a system which are known to few, but which are an inseparable part of our society.
