Jan Schlickmann is a cynical lawyer who goes out to "get rid of" a case, only to find out it is potentially worth millions. The case becomes his obsession, to the extent that he is willing to give up everything - including his career and his clients' goals, in order to continue the case against all odds.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity None.
violence The plot of the film involves a trial about whether or not children were killed by a pollutant in a town's water supply. The children's deaths is a very thematic issue, but no violence is shown. One scene in particular involves a married couple pulling over on a highway road in the pouring rain, trying desperately to revive their son, who mysteriously (and suspiciously thanks to the pollution) stops breathing and dies. The dad cries and the mom screams out in agony; the shadow of her rocking her dead son in her arms is briefly seen in the car, and again in a recreation scene. The main character throws things in his office while frustrated and angry, but no one is hurt.
profanity 3 uses of the "f" word and several milder profanities like "d**n", "s**t", and "hell."
alcohol Several character smoke cigarettes.
frightening A major plot point of the film revolves around the death of children, and scenes involving this are very emotional.
