Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straightlaced and responsible yin to Mike's yang.

Their mom-and-pop personal-injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job.

As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.

This movie is based on a true story and had the blessing of real-life Weiss and Danziger. Weiss and Danzinger had been approached by an inventor having trouble selling a safety syringe developed to protect health care workers from accidentally being infected by dirty needles due to a major industry needle maker and hospital group purchasing organizations pushing back against the introduction of the new, safer syringes.
