Against the wishes of his wife and tell of his partners, Wyatt takes on a difficult case: the defense of Marvin White, a young black man with a criminal record and accused of seven vicious rape-murders. All odds are against White’s beating the rap – especially when he has been at scene of the latest slaying.
