Meet Kathryn Bolkovac, the woman behind "The Whistleblower" film and co-author of the true story. In the late 1990s, Kathyrn Bolkovac, a Nebraska police officer, answered a job ad to work in Bosnia for an American defense contractor. She looked forward to an opportunity to help rebuild a war-torn country as a human rights investigator. She had no idea her investigations into sex trafficking and prostitution rings would implicate some of her United Nations colleagues, and put her life in danger.
