Based on the novel by Barry Reed, the film follows once respected lawyer Frank Galvin (Newman, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) as he fights to salvage his self-esteem and career after sinking into an abyss of cynicism and alcoholic self-pity. When Galvin's ex-partner Mickey Morrissey (Warden, Heaven Can Wait) offers him an open and shut case, Galvin's passion for justice and faith in the legal system is revived.

The new lease of life is one last chance at restoring his dignity and takes him on a journey from a broken man to an impassioned individual. After visiting the victim in hospital the once straightforward case, takes a moral turn. What follows is a chain of events, which lead him into the courtroom for an explosive encounter with Boston's legal elite.
