Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A disgraced lawyer uncovers a sinister police conspiracy while handling the appeal of a convicted murderess. Cate McCall (Kate Beckinsale) used to be a hot shot lawyer. These days she's lucky she's not in jail. Now, newly sober, McCall must prove a convicted killer innocent on appeal in order to get reinstated in the bar and win back custody of her daughter. Just when it starts to look like she's gathered enough evidence to make a solid case and win back her career, however, McCall uncovers shocking evidence of corruption within the police department, and realizes she is in mortal danger. Nick Nolte, James Cromwell, Clancy Brown, and Mark Pellegrino co-star.
