Synopsis
They don’t wear uniforms or carry weapons. They have no bodyguards. They are equipped with laptops, cameras and sound recorders. They work along dusty roads and in overcrowded refugee camps. They listen to hundreds of testimonies of rape, murder and torture; so gruesome they themselves sometimes come close to breaking point. Despite impossible working conditions, they collect the evidence for indictments against those who ordered some of the most serious crimes of our time - committed in Darfur, Uganda, The Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic - they are the investigators of the International Criminal Court. The film accompanies the investigators in their search for the truth, a quest, demanding their utmost strength and commitment. They are the real heroes of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
