Gideon Versus Wainwright

LOGLINE: Sometimes lawyers can be heroes, too.

It is 1962, and a semi-literate jailbird sends a clumsy letter to the Supreme Court, asking for justice. Doctor Kim Sullivan, elegant Washington socialite and superb legal brain, wants to help Clarence Gideon ... but she will have to overcome her own demons in order to do so.

This courtroom drama is based on the real-life legal case which reinterpreted the American Constitution.
