Michael Trainer (Matthew Modine) is a high-powered corporate 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 Randolph (Shane Paul McGhie), with catastrophic results. A successful litigator with a long career in protecting corporate clients, Michael has been blinded from recognizing the real damage they can cause. Estranged from his family and his humanity, he initially wanted nothing to do with Jamal’s case until a Judge (Louis Gossett Jr.) forced him to accept it. If Michael and Jamal can overcome their differences, they may find justice for Jamal and expose the immorality of for-profit foster care.
