The TV series presents a story about lawyer Agata Przybysz (Agata Dygant), 30, who loses her job and is forced to start her own law firm, struggling with many problems and obstacles along the way.
Each of the episodes in the series is dedicated to a new interesting case the law firm is hired to solve.
A total of seven series have been made – the first series has 15 episodes, and all others have 13 episodes each.
The series was made in many locations in Bydgoszcz, and many threads in it make references to the city itself, for example the fact that the main protagonist is a native of Bydgoszcz, and her father (played by Marian Opania) spent part of his life there. The threads connected with visiting the father were filmed in Bydgoszcz.
The first “Bydgoszcz” episodes were filmed by the Brda River, in the autumn of 2011.
Then the film crew returned to film in the city, in April 2012.
They visited the following locations used in the film.
The film crew also went to other places near Bydgoszcz, for example Koronowo, where they shot a number of scenes in a penal institution there. The scenes shot in Koronowo were shown in episodes 8 and 9 of the second series. A number of shoots were done on location at a nearby beach in Samociążek.
