Plot Overview

Prominent attorney Clinton Judd arrives in the small Texas town where he was raised to defend a psychopath accused of killing two girls. He's hardly prepared for what happens next: for one thing, he has to discredit a witness, a man who tried to save the life of Judd's wounded father, the one-time town Sheriff. Additionally, one of the two girls turns up very much alive.
