One man's search for justice and redemption plunges him into the violent world of Melbourne's underbelly.
Defence lawyer Will Harris is reluctantly drawn into a bizarre murder trial. A terminally ill man claims to have witnessed the brutal crime - in a vision.
But the looming trial is more than just a media circus- it's Will's first big case since the tragic death of his fiancee.
With the pressure mounting, Will's loyalties are split when his fiancee's sister is charged with drug trafficking.
The strain of balancing both cases takes its toll and Will finds himself torn between following the law and seeking justice.
Blood Witness is a dark powerful thriller from a talented new voice.
