When Jack Swyteck's estranged father becomes governor, Jack's career as a defense attorney becomes a deadly conflict of interests. As governor, his father refuses Jack's last-minute request for a stay, and Jack's client is executed. Later, Jack is accused of a murder he didn't commit and the governor faces political ruin, the climax of a revenge campaign waged by someone connected to Jack's former client. Neither father nor son can help the other without harming himself and, as if that weren't bad enough, the conspirator has one more sadistic card to play.
