A sleazy lawyer is the focus of this courtroom drama. His favorite technique is to teach his female clients how to use their bodies provocatively in court to sway the jury. Without a doubt, his methods are successful. Unfortunately, his female assistant is offended by the tactics and threatens to expose him. Instead she falls in love with him. She uses her own feminine wiles to get him to stop it.
