Description

A racist attorney faces a crisis of conscience when reluctantly defending a black man brutally beaten by police and charged with resisting arrest.

Hiram Garbuncle is a veteran criminal defense attorney?as well as a racist, miserly alcoholic. His life revolves around hoarding money, following sports, pursuing sex, drinking?and the prideful practice of law.

Alec Monceau is a black man working to support his daughter?s family in Trinidad. It is 2008, and his car carries an Obama bumper sticker. This political advertisement leads to a superfluous traffic stop and a brutal beating by police.

It goes against Garbuncle?s grain to defend a black man from a charge of violently resisting arrest, but he is so confident of winning that he is negligent in the jury selection, and a mistrial occurs. He then discovers incriminating evidence on the two cops, and his new challenge becomes how to keep himself and his client alive pending a new trial.
