In 2010, Claudia Paz y Paz became the first woman to be appointed attorney general in Guatemala, where at that time 95 percent of murder cases were unsolved. The former human rights activist and lawyer decided to give filmmakers exclusive behind-the-scenes access of her new office. She believes in transparency and fighting against impunity. She aims to bring to justice killers, cartel bosses and members of the former military junta, which in the 1980s was responsible for the genocide of the indigenous Mayan population. Can there be a fair trial in a country led by a former army commander?
