INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY.
A young, ambitious lawyer is eager to prove he is better than the mobster dominated family he grew up in. Working as a Bronx Legal Aid Attorney he learns how to twist the system, how to become an unbeatable defense lawyer. But it’s 1982. The Spiderman rapist is on the loose and New York City is a city in fear. When an outraged victim commits suicide right before his eyes, searching for absolution and determined to prove his client’s innocence, he knocks the pegs out from under the prosecution’s case. Digging deeper, horrifying revelations about his family’s past collide with the true identity of the sadistic sociopath behind the real Spiderman’s rampage. In the process, this good lawyer comes face-to-face with his greatest conflict and deepest fear: to win, really win, must he sacrifice every principle he believes in and embrace his family’s mafia past to become judge, jury, and executioner?
