It's a long hot summer. In a peaceful town however, conflict simmers below a placid surface. A young black girl is brutally raped and her father Jackson (The Negotiator, Jackie Brown) takes the law into his own hands. It's up to hot-shot attorney McConaughey (Contact) to fight for justice. To do this he must face the wily district attorney Kevin Spacey (Oscar winner for The Usual Suspects) and in the process risk his job, his family and his future. He quickly finds that his fight for fairness is not just restricted to the courtroom - he has to fight the entire town as well. The beleaguered attorney has only one person to rely on. A bright young legal student played by Sandra Bullock (Practical Magic). Directed by Joel Schumacher (Batman And Robin) and based on a John Grisham bestseller.
