SEASON 1: DEATH AND A MAIDEN
LEGAL DRAMA / TRUE CRIME
A MALICIOUSLY ACCUSED TEENAGER AND A REBEL LAWYER MUST DEFEAT RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS TO SAVE HER LIFE
A 17th century peasant girl, accused of murdering her bastard child, faces death by drowning or being buried alive. Despite a lack of evidence and judged by midwives to have never even given birth, the girl disappears into the torture chambers of the Free City Brunswick, Lower Saxony until Justus Oldekop, a lifelong activist against the practice of torture, turns her case into a battle of wits between the religious zealots ruling the Free City and the neighboring Overlords eager to control it.
Chronicled by WILLIAM D. MYERS in his book of the same title, surprisingly contemporary issues such as torture, political and economic liberty and a woman's control over her body surface in this historical legal drama, reminiscent of THE NAME OF THE ROSE or THE CRUCIBLE, but also of GOLIATH or THE NIGHT OF.
