At the insistence of an influential black state senator and a lack of evidence, Joan Cardwell, an elected prosecutor, amidst racial tensions, brings a murder charge against a white police officer for the death of a black burglary suspect. In return, the prosecutor is promised a judicial appointment. Shortly after that promise is fulfilled, the senator’s son is charged with murdering his girlfriend and the case is assigned to now Judge Cardwell. Jonathan Felbin, the police officer’s former attorney, is hired to represent the senator’s son and quickly suspects that the fix is in. When the trial ends, will Felbin’s suspicions about the judge be verified? Will the real killer be identified or will Felbin search for answers that will lead down a dangerous path filled with twists, turns and dead ends? In the end will the guilty be identified or will politics define the criminal justice system?
