    • Synopsis
    • Tim (Aaron KWOK) is a defense attorney with a heart of gold. Refusing to simply be a hired gun for his wealthy clients, Tim quits his well-paid job to become a prosecutor at the Justice Department. With the support from his fiancée Megan and his cop buddy Nam (LIU Kai-chi), Tim decides to start life anew.
      When he chances upon a handicapped piano teacher Jing (GWEI Lun-mei), she urges Tim desperately to help her. She is accusing her doctor, the renowned surgeon Zhou (CHANG Chen), of sexual harassment during her check-up in the clinic. But given the doctor and patient are the only ones in the room, and each of them offers contradictory testimony, the case soon turns into a Rashomon-esque mystery.
      To up the ante further, Zhou’s defense attorney happens to be the talented Freddy (XIA Yu), who takes over Tim’s position in the previous law firm. The sharp-tongued lawyer proves to be Tim’s toughest opponent to date. With the media frenzy around this sexual harassment case, it slowly destroys the lives of everyone involved, including Tim and his fiancée, Jing the victim, as well as the doctor’s wife Jie (QIN Hailu) and her young daughter. Tim soon realizes the cost to the truth may simply be too much to bear.
