Scene from "The Whistleblower" (photo © Andrei Alexandru)

Kathy Bolkovac is a Nebraskan police officer and mother who, in 1999, goes out on a limb to work for the United Nations as a monitor in post-war Bosnia. But her expectations of helping rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she unveils a reality involving international complicity in sex trafficking, corruption, and cover-up. Kathy is a fish-out-of-water in the confusing world of UN contingents, private contractors, and diplomatic doubletalk, but now she must choose whether to turn against the institution she so passionately believed in, and risk all to protect the innocent. Based on a true story.
