Lucas Kendricks arrives at his wife Nell's property seven years
after disappearing and is instantly shot dead. Accused of murder,
Nell turns to lawyer Frank Holloway. Knowing he can't win this
case alone, he calls upon his daughter, Barbara, who gave up her
practice years before but is legally able to defend clients in
death penalty cases. Barbara finds herself drawn to the case and
reclaims the search for truth that first led her to the law.
