When his legal partner dies and he ends up at a tonier law firm, Israel gets involved in a complicated murder case that offers him an opportunity to get rich if he compromises his ethics. Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo, Shelley Hennig, and Tony Plana co-star. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler).
