As public prosecutor, Helena De Ridder leads the police investigation and institutes criminal proceedings in court. It gives De Ridder a unique focus. Week after week the spectator will follow a criminal dossier from beginning to end, from indictment to sentence, in the company of Helena. For Helena, finding the perpetrator is not enough: she also has to see to it that proper sentence is passed and that the perpetrator gets just punishment. And that is often difficult, for the world of crime and justice is never black or white.
