A drama based on the experiences of Kathryn Bolkovac, a Nebraska cop who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and outed the U.N. for covering up a sex scandal.

This movie made me sick. As a woman and a human being. All the references to good, powerful, rights, references are smashed. Everything. The United Nations as a powerful source of (in)justice, the police in Bosnia taking advantage of the lack of system, the women who do not believe anymore in any salvation, and this woman trying to attack a system that protect itself. Rachel Weisz is amazing of truth, in a world of corruption, her righteousness is almost suicidal, and somehow makes her a hero. Even tho nothing after all changed. Sick...
