He is respected in his comunity, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with hish wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: His 14 year old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.
every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. Andy must. He's his father. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies as the crisis reveals how little a father intensifies, as the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son. Andy will face a trial of his own between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he's tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.
