Attorney Robin "Stormy" Weathers (Judd Nelson) engages in some outrageous courtroom antics in order to get a bank president acquitted of assault charges. Stormy's performance is so impressive that he's then promoted to partner in his firm. But his next case is defending Douglas Benoit (John Hurt), a professor who is accused of killing a prostitute with a hammer. Stormy struggles with the case and his belief that Benoit is a raving lunatic, a danger to society and guilty of the murder.
