Synopsis

A high-stakes thriller about a savvy entertainment lawyer who finds hinmself trapped and fighting for his life in the labyrinthine Chinese legal system. Jack Moore has come to China to broker a multi-million dollar television deal and, while celebrating the deal, meets and seduces a beautiful Chinese woman. When he awakes the next morning, she is dead and he is accused of her brutal rape and murder. In a legal system with no presumption of innocence, Jack soon finds himself facing imminent execution--unless he can convince his skeptical court-appointed attorney of his innocence.
