Defense attorney Richard Ramsay works on a tough case to defend 17 year-old Mike Lassiter, who is suspected of murdering his wealthy father. Ramsay enlists the help of a young lawyer Janelle, who is determined to find out the truth about what happened that day.



Daniel Craig was originally set to star since January 2014. In April, just a few days before filming was set to commence, he dropped out of the project for unknown reasons.[5] Craig was replaced by Keanu Reeves in June.

On July 10, 2014, Jim Belushi joined the cast of the film to play Mike's father, and Zellweger would play his mother.[3] On August 12, Jim Klock was added to the cast to play the prosecutor, who has a rock-solid case against the teen.[4]


Principal photography of the film began on July 7, 2014, in New Orleans, Louisiana.[6][3] Previously the filming was slated to take place in Boston.[7]
