A young lawyer and his client, accused of murder, begin a game of cat-and-mouse as the client begins to draw the lawyer into his psychotic world. The lawyer teams with a roommate of one victim to search for clues that will link the client to the murders. In their search, they discover the shocking truth of the crimes.
A defense attorney who has just gotten his client acquitted of rape and murder charges, discovers that the wealthy psycho is, in fact, quilty. With the killer free, the crimes start piling up once again. The attorney wrestles with his conscience over whether he should honor the ethics of his profession and do nothing or put a stop to the killing himself.
