Alex Lord has just turned thirty and has everything an ambitious young lawyer could want-he's a rising star at the largest law firm in town, he has a BMW, a beautiful home, and a trophy wife. The relentless demands of his job are straining his marriage and his competitive relationship with his childhood friend and coworker, but he's sure it will all work out once his big trial is over. In the midst of this, one of the partners assigns Alex the responsibility of getting rid of a nuisance lawsuit brought against the firm by a feeble old man. After a confrontation with the old man, Alex's life begins to unravel. But an angry confrontation with the old man opens Alex's eyes and he embarks on a new mission for justice, to salvage his marriage, and find his soul.
