Ruth Bader Ginsburg has changed America. Born in 1933 into a Jewish New York immigrant family, the independent woman never hesitated to defend the rights of women and minorities in her position as a lawyer. Eventually, she was the second woman in history to become a judge of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the U.S. The charismatic justice fighter has become an icon of pop culture. Based on interviews given by Ginsburg and her close associates and using archive material, directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West honour the life of an extraordinary lawyer, whom we also get to observe in her private life as a wife, mother and spouse.
