Synopsis

Clay Carter has been working in The Office of the Public Defender for too long and he dreams of better things.

When he reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it's just another of the many senseless murders that hit Washington D.C. every week.

But as he digs deeper, Clay stumbles upon a conspiracy too horrifying to believe. A pharmaceutical giant has been secretly and illegally testing a new drug on addicts - one that helps stop addiction, but which drives them to random acts of violence.

Overnight, Clay becomes a celebrity among lawyers and a national media figure.

But as the financial stakes rise, so does the danger...
