Martha Costello is in her thirties, single, passionate and a Defence Barrister applying for Silk (Highest ranking of a Barrister). Innocent until proven guilty are four words she lives by.

Twenty one years old, Nick is Martha's pupil. Being a pupil from a non-moneyed background is tough. Nick won't get paid for the work he does until at least six months after he finishes it. It's still hard breaking through the class ceiling at the Bar.
Martha sees a lot of herself in Nick - what she was like when she first came to the Bar. The relationship between pupil and pupilmistress is a complex one. Lots of time spent together and not much stays hidden.
