Terrific scheme

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I read the novel a couple of years ago and this TV movie is rather faithful to it. The scheme is a man who is accused of a crime he did not commit and put in jail. His friend does his best to get him out of it, or at least prove his innocence. And it happens that the accused man has a ringer, a man who looks like him, same face, same frame, a lawyer who is also a desperate gambler submerged by gambling debts. So the accused man's friend proposes the gambler to become his friend's counselor put in jail, and in return, the gambler will have his debts erased. He will have to impersonate him, take his place during a parlour session. Then the accused man will do his best to find the real murderer of the crime he was accused of...And then return to jail during another visiting session to get back to his cell. The perfect alibi...

But nothing will go as planned. A pure jewel...
