A man accused of murdering his wife approaches a hotshot female criminal attorney to take his case. The man is a self-professed womaniser, and his alleged motive would be the large sum of money his wife left him. The attorney begins to have second thoughts about representing him when he starts making it look like they're having an affair and tells her things she can't reveal because of lawyer/client privilege, so she starts her own investigation of him, which threatens her career and the safety of her friends and herself.

Yeah, well, oh, sometimes you gotta get rid of the old to make way for the new, you know what I mean? I mean let's face it, old people they just kind of clutter up the world, know what I mean. They walk too slow and they talk too slow and they drive too slow and they're always in the fucking way, trying to remind you about how things used to be. Pain in the ass really.
