Plot Overview

The co-owner of a children's camp is in trouble after an accident in a bus where he was driving a group of kids--first, the father of two kids injured in the accident files a lawsuit against him, and secondly, he's charged in criminal court with vehicular homicide after a boy dies and it's revealed that he may have been drunk. Owen wants to believe that his client got into a fight in a bar with a drunk and was splashed with a drink when he entered the tavern to call his wife, and also that the accident happened when he swerved to avoid a motorcycle, but a couple of obstacles arise: first, it's revealed that the client served six months in jail for assault as a result of a bar fight, and second, the man is distrustful of lawyers due to that earlier incident.
