WITCH HUNT

HEKSEJAKT

Ida Waage is a dynamic woman, working as the CFO at a prestigious law firm. One day, she spots a suspicious invoice and soon traces it back to a money laundering operation linked to the firm’s biggest client, Peer Eggen. She alerts her executive board, but to her shock, they turn on her, and look to discredit her with the threat of false accusations. With her job and credibility at threat, Ida continues to seek justice and alerts the police. Investigator Eirik Bråten discovers that the invoice is a cover-up for a greater scandal that involves various transactions between Eggen and the husband of Norway’s Minister of Justice. When journalist Aida Salim takes this bombshell news public, Ida’s firm retaliates further, with vicious stories designed to ruin her career. After the Minister dies suddenly in a crash, Eirik and Aida join forces to hunt for evidence, assuming Eggen to be behind the accident, while Ida pursues her employees in court. However, Ida ultimately realises that her determination to fight back and do the right thing is putting herself, and everyone she loves, in grave danger.
