    • Synopsis
    • Tony Smalls ("The Wire"s Wood Harris) is a burned out lawyer looking for a new direction in life. But he has to put his plans on hold when his sister Nia asks him to defend her fiancé, a gang kingpin who is under arrest for a triple murder that he says he didn’t commit. Suddenly the feds and a shadowy corporation get involved, along with a private investigator who seems to be working all sides. Meanwhile, Nia starts an investigation of her own, bringing her closer to the truth—and putting both herself and Tony in harm’s way.
