Sharice pushes Carter to use her uncle's connections to get a job in a fancy downtown law firm. Carter agrees to leave the defender's office for a new job, though not to join a fancy law firm.

I have seen this movie and I enjoyed it very much. However I do feel that the ending could have been much better. It sort of left you wondering...is there anything more? I think the ending could have been a little better than that. Above all I feel that Roger Smith as an excellent outstanding actor and he truly does play his part and then some. I would recommend this movie to others to view. I am also a big fan of Roger G. Smith and I also enjoy watching him in some of the films of his early career days. I watched him in A Huey P. Newton Story which I also give a 10+. Very. very, very good character to resemble. Why have I not noticed him before? After looking through his filmography...I had not realized how many movies that he appeared in. I had to go back into my video library and dig them out to review over again. Dam he's fine. Keep up the good work Roger. You Rock Sweetie!!!!
