Storyline

After dedicating years of his life to the practice of law in the small town of Silver Shade, Daniel Webster Stewart (Louis Gossett Jr) has closed his office in order to devote his time to his lifelong dream of running for Congress. But when the beautiful young wife of his political opponent Horton Roundtree (Robert Urich) is brutally murdered, Daniel finds that he must go back into the courtroom again. Daniel's friend Curtis Gallagher has been falsely accused of the murder and someone has threatened to reveal a shocking secret about Daniel's wife Olivia if he refuses to defend Curtis. However there is someone else in town who is just as anxious to keep Daniel off the case. Written by Anonymous

Congress can wait
20 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this sequel Lou Gossett Jr returns as small town lawyer Daniel Stewart in the mid south of the 1960s. This time he is running for Congress and seems to be doing well. When the wife of the incumbent Horton Roundtree is found murdered, Stewart returns to the law to defend the suspect who is a poor black carpenter, who was seen running from the Roundtree house in the middle of the night.

As the trial approaches, people are unhappy that Stewart has seemingly turned his back on politics and during the trial dark secrets emerge such as Mrs Roundtree preferring black men and Stewart's own wife is somehow linked to Horton Rowntree due to a past indiscretion.

Lou Gossett was a producer and star of this tepid and dull television movie. It might had been a labour of love for him but came across as absurd and stupid to me.
