Prosecutor offers front-row seats to the historic events that will determine whether the International Criminal Court is a groundbreaking new weapon for global justice or just an idealistic dream.

With extraordinary inside access, the documentary follows Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo's first trials under its jurisdiction as he investigates and prosecutes some of the world’s worst criminals for some of the world’s worst crimes. He’s a hero to genocide survivors, but has bitter enemies on both the Right and the Left.

The documentary is based in part on the book The Sun Climbs Slow: The International Criminal Court and the Struggle for Justice by Erna Paris.
