Synopsis

Jewish-Israeli human rights lawyer Lea Tsemel defends Palestinians: from feminists to fundamentalists, from non-violent demonstrators to armed militants. Frequently subjected to harsh criticism in the press and in the public view, Tsemel has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years and tirelessly quests for justice. We meet Lea and the team as they prepare for their youngest defendant yet – a 13-year-old boy implicated in a knife attack on the streets of Jerusalem.
