A young girl is murdered, executed with a single bullet through her skull. A homeless man, Tom Stoller, is arrested. He can't remember what happened on the night in question, but the evidence of his guilt stacks up around him. But for lawyer Jason Kolarich, the story just doesn't quite ring true. He digs deeper - and uncovers a conspiracy that extends far beyond this courtroom and Tom. The whole city is in danger, and he's running out of time.
