Show Info: Eight part drama made by ABC Australia. With her low-flying solicitor’s practice incinerated by a disgruntled client, her marriage collapsing and motherhood fast losing its charm, Josephine Newton’s old uni friend and not-so secret admirer, Lewis Hughes, persuades her to resume her briefly glorious career at the Bar. As she rises to the challenge, though, trading the benefits of her brilliant mind for a berth in the lofty glamour of Knox Chambers, Josephine realises it’s not so easy to leave her entourage behind.
