Product Description:

A judge frustrated by the lenient legal system joins a secret group of judges who have set up their own court which operates outside the scope of the law. When "verdicts" are reached on two men who are later discovered to be innocent, serious ethical questions arise in this taut and interesting thriller.

Plot Synopsis:

Hardin is a hard-working, honest judge becoming frustrated with a legal system, that continuously forces him to release criminals on technicalities. He reaches his breaking point when he must set free two members of a child-pornography ring accused of murdering a boy. Feeling defeated, Hardin turns to his mentor Judge Caulfield, who ushers him into a secret society of magistrates called the Star Chamber. These judges act as deadly vigilantes, exacting revenge on heinous lawbreakers freed on technicalities. But when the Star Chamber sets its sights on the child-porno duo, Hardin finds himself protecting the killers, who may not be guilty after all.
