Matilda De Angelis is the first Italian lawyer in Turin at the end of the 19th century
Turin, late 1800s. A ruling by the Court of Appeal of Turin declares Lidia Poët’s enrollment in the register of lawyers illegitimate, thus preventing her from practicing the profession just because she is a woman. Penniless but full of pride, Lidia finds a job at her brother Enrico’s law firm, while she prepares the appeal to overturn the Court’s conclusions.
Through a gaze that goes beyond her time, Lidia assists the suspects by seeking the truth behind appearances and prejudices. Jacopo, a mysterious journalist and Lidia’s brother-in-law, passes information and guides her into the hidden worlds of a magniloquent Turin. The series reinterprets the true story of Lidia Poët, Italy’s first lawyer, in a light procedural key.
