Storyline

Alan Davies, a brilliant lawyer, has made a mess of his personal life. He is separated from his wife and son living in Austalia, estranged from his alcoholic father, having an affair with the wife of a dying man, and in debt from his compulsive gambling habit. In order to close his financial shortfall, he has taken on three cases at once including an immigrant rug dealer accused of false advertising, an alleged fence dealing in stolen property, and a former mental patient accused of drowning her boyfriend's two children.
