Synopsis: The film documents the last year in the work of the Public Protector in South Africa. In a country raging with corruption and ever-increasing economic inequalities, Thuli Madonsela is the only hope for the country’s poorest citizens. Before the end of her term, she manages to successfully accuse the incumbent president of embezzlement of public funds and start a battle against another corrupt system at the highest echelons of power.
