More detailed series description via press release:
Joanna Chylka is a capable, uncompromising, courageous and rebellious lawyer in a legal world full of men who don’t give in to anything. When three-year-old Nikola Szlezyngier disappears without a trace and the police find no evidence of kidnapping, the child’s parents become the main suspects. Desperate, they decide to contact Chylka, an old friend, who agrees to undertake their defence despite other cases piling up on her desk and mountains of evidence indicating the couple’s guilt. Will her legal team manage to find the real guilty party, or has the truth been under their noses this whole time?
Series 3 info. via press release [Possible SPOILERS for earlier seasons]:
Since burying her career, Chyłka provides legal advice for a living and her free time is spent drinking. Everything changes when approached by a man whose wife and daughter were brutally murdered. Chyłka undertakes the case to help this grieving husband and father with legal formalities related to inheritance policy. She does not expect that a seemingly trivial inheritance case may become a springboard for her return to the top… To Chyłka’s surprise, the policy is for an absurdly high amount and was bought by Salus, a company whose interests are represented by Żelazny & McVay law firm, and more precisely – savvy lawyer Lew and his new apprentice Kordian. The possibility of getting back at the law firm and the prospect of high earnings puts Chyłka in a good mood, although the road to success will not be easy. With relationships tainted by her recent downfall and the police gathering evidence against her client, the journey back to her prime proves tumultuous. Is Chyłka’s greatest enemy closer than she thought?
