Michael is a high-powered lawyer and Jamal is an angry young man who has been imprisoned after years of abuse in the foster care system. Together they have to overcome their differences to find justice and expose the foster care system.
Michael Trainer is a lawyer at the center of a trial in which a for-profit Foster care agency puts a known sex offender into the same foster home as his young client Jamal, with catastrophic results. Michael, a successful litigator with a long career in protecting corporate clients, has been blinded from recognizing the real damage they can cause. He wants nothing to do with Jamal's case until a Judge forces him to accept it. Initially he sees Jamal, as a thuggish African American youth trying to get a piece of corporate profits. But when Jamal refuses to settle the case for any amount of money, Michael begins his representation in earnest. As their work together reveals the horrifying depth of the corrupt and abusive for-profit Foster care agency, Michael is transformed from reluctant defender to fierce warrior in the battle for justice.
This is a nuisance case Mr. Trainer, just like the dozen or so you and I have handled over the years.

so slow and sparse
Its a long time since my last courtroomdrama, and this flick did not motivate for further binging on this genre. the story is important enough, but an inconsistently storyline and plot, where the judge is like a piece of garbage, and the sabotaging done by the case counterpart, are completely ruled out of explanation. i guess the makers have slept through the court tv-series that rumaged in the 1990's and 2000', and where the real action should be aim't
its a piece of terrible caracter building, and the actors doesnt contribute at all. very uninspiring and flat, its a no recommend from the grumpy old man
