I Know Your Soul

I Know Your Soul (TV series)

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere
Sarajevo prosecutor and single mother Nevena’s latest case hits close to home: A teenage boy from the same school as her son Dino has committed suicide. Nevena attracts bad publicity when the bereaved father criticizes her slow investigation, yet she earns little sympathy for her understaffed department or impending divorce. Soon Nevena learns the school may be hiding abuse among its students, and consumed by concern for Dino, Nevena is blindsided when the victim’s father names her son as an abuser. Driven by motherly love and moral responsibility, Nevena desperately seeks facts in an increasingly hostile environment. She knows that in a society where justice is controlled by wealth and a male political elite, her sole allies in her hunt for the truth remain an old flame and a new coworker who reports to her superior behind her back. But the fact-finding that makes Nevena so good at her job pits her against the son she fears she can no longer trust.
