In 1982 Boston Frank is an alcoholic lawyer reduced to ambulance chasing. His only remaining friend and former associate, Mickey, gives him a medical malpractice suit that is a sure thing Frank can't lose. If the the parties settle out of court Frank could bet financially secure for awhile. When it's clear to Frank it's a criminal case with a hostile judge presiding, he knows he can't live with himself unless he tries it in court. In the meantime, he's distracted by a relationship with a mysterious woman who is also prone to alcohol. With missing witnesses and fighting an urge to drink, can Frank outwit his cunning opponents?
