Defense lawyer Frank Doherty and his friends square off against the stench of dirty cops and corrupt politicians. One by one, the pieces fall into place, but the closer he gets to his answer, the greater the danger to those around him.

Frank is not naive. Nothing he sees in the criminal justice system surprises him, but this time it's personal. While he mourns the loss of his wife and niece, he must raise his children alone and wage his private war to the bitter end.
