A man sets a fantastic goal for himself, to become a lawyer. It is a very high goal for him because to achieve it he had to overcome earlier failures, including poor performance in undergraduate study and a checkered past. The first might keep him out of law school, the second out of the bar. He confronts both, however, as well as his debilitating self doubt, and does become a lawyer, gaining admission to law school, completing it and graduating from it, and then passing the bar exam and getting admitted to the bar. In practice, however, trouble returns. His weak, near criminal character is exposed, and his standing as a lawyer is diminished until he is ultimately disbarred.
