Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a classic real life functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is straight-laced and responsible. Their mom-and-pop personal injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they take on a case involving 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 is uncovered. Out of their league but rich in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes these underdogs to the breaking point, and point of no return.
