Synopses & Reviews
Star attorney Claire Heller Chapman has known only love and respect from her successful husband. But now police are saying Tom Chapman is not who he says he is. Thirteen years ago, they claim, he had a different face and a different name -- and was responsible for a crime so heinous that only a maniac could have committed it. Now Claire must put her reputation, her family, and her life on the line to defend this man she never knew -- in a case where all the evidence is classified, all the rules are being changed around her...and the stakes are higher and deadlier than she or anyone else could have ever imagined.
Claire Heller Chapman is a star Harvard law professor and high-powered attorney. But a random burglary at their Boston home triggers a chain of events that reveals Tom, Claire's husband, is not who he says he is. Suddenly he's on trial for a crime he insists he didn't commit, and she must defend him. Now a major motion picture from TriStar that reunites Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman of "Kiss the Girls."
