Jacques Verges is the man who has defended them all. Acclaimed filmmaker Barbet Schrieder takes us down history's darkest paths in his engrossing attempt to illuminate the mystery behind this enigmatic and controversial lawyer. At the height of his career, Verges disappeared without trace for 8 years. Following his return to the public eye, he resumed his profession with a vengeance, acting as the legal representative of some of the Century's most notorious figures, including Carlos the Jackal, Slobodan Milosevic and Nazi Lieutenant Klaus Barbie.
