Park Chao Reum is a newly appointed judge who is assigned to the 44th Civil Affairs Department at the Seoul Central District. She is always on the lookout for injustice and is able to profoundly empathize with others. Compared to her, Im Ba Reun is a cool-headed man of principle with the creed of ‘Court that is equal to all’, and he is displeased with junior judge Park Chao Reum who isovertly sympathetic when it comes to cases.
One day, Park Chao Reum encounters a threat in the form of ‘Professor’s rape of a female student case’. She questions the witness extensively at the court in order to reveal the truth, and her actions lead to a conviction, but the professor under court restriction commits suicide in prison and the whole press blames the justice department. Even the citizens that had worshipped and praised her start to criticize her severely for the court’s rash decision. Will Park Chao Reum’s ‘Righteous court’ be able to be realized amidst the authority of the court and the judgment of the people?
