Depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.
Everything brilliant and compassionate defense attorney Paul Madriani stands for is put to the test when he's hired to defend an indefensible adversary. Baltimore's Judge Armando Acosti's harsh and inflexible rulings are notorious. His unjust sentence of attorney Paul Madriani's latest client, an abused wife charged with the murder of her husband, is proof. But Madriani soon finds himself in a curious position of power over the judge.

This movie is about as good as a court scene movie can be. Chris Noth, while up to now has not had winning shows, in this Hallmark showing he does a very convincing job as the lead defense lawyer, and acts with force and fine precision. The movie is long, 3½ hours, and without complaint, it had me on the edge, without a clue as to how events would work out. Lolita Davidovich does a fine job, too bad we didn't see a bit more of her, and Charles Durning is his usual forceful self. Edward Olmos, as the accused, played the role of a complex, believable judge. All of the players, fit their roles very well. This is a sleeper with future potential. Basil
