Starring: Keanu Reeves, Renée Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabriel Basso, Jim Belushi, Jon Arthur

Thriller directed by Courtney Hunt which centers on defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) who takes on a personal case to defend 17 year-old Mike Lassiter (Gabriel Basso), who is suspected of murdering his wealthy father, Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi), and swears to his mother, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), that he will keep Mike out of prison.

Mike initially confesses to the crime, but as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter really was comes to light. While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, he enlists the help of a young lawyer, Janelle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), to dig deeper to find out the truth and she begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover.
