A corporate attorney gives up his prestigious position for the life of a public defender and tackles a case he cannot possibly win: the defense of a young black man with a criminal record who has been accused of seven rape-murders.

Is he willing to risk his hard-earned reputation and take the chance of losing the wife he loves for true justice to prevail?
