Informer 3838 is based on the sensational story of Nicola Gobbo who was the go-to defence lawyer in Melbourne’s deadly gangland wars, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Carl Williams, Tony Mokbel, the Morans and the Carlton Crew while she acted as a police informer on her own clients. While Nicola Gobbo knew the underworld’s dirty secrets, they had no idea of hers. She played both sides and risked everything to double-cross many of Australia’s most notorious gangsters. Informer 3838 goes behind the headlines to show how Nicola Gobbo’s secret double life helped police win the gangland wars, which triggered a Royal Commission and left her in fear of her life.

Reeling from the murder of an informer, Nicola Gobbo vows to bring down Carl Williams and help police win the gangland war. Her actions set her on a collision course with the crims, the cops and the entire justice system.
