Summary
Rudy is a young lawyer fresh out of college who takes the case of his life. He is the only hope of an elderly couple whose insurance company will not pay for an operation that could save their son's life. Rudy takes on this client in his first case after the head of his law office has to hide because he's wanted by the feds. He must overcome many obstacles inside and outside the courtroom as he attempts to find out what it means to be a lawyer and how far you have to go before you become a sell-out
