A Supreme Court Justice Takes his own life. A woman is found dead - the victim of a grisly murder. A homeless Vietnam vet stands accused. Kathleen Riley is an overworked Washington D.C. public defender who needs a vacation. Instead, she is assigned another case. But this is no ordinary crime, with no ordinary criminal. Lobbyist Eddie Sanger gets saddled with jury duty just when a critical bill is coming up for vote. While on jury duty, Eddie discovers evidence critical to Kathleen's case and contacts her outside the courtroom... a violation of the law. Bizarre evidence leads Kathleen on a dangerous trail from Washington's seamy underbelly to the highest levels of government. And the closer she gets to the answer, the more her life is in danger. Cher and Dennis Quaid take the law into their own hands in the daring suspense thriller where everything is revealed in court... except the truth.
