In the process of trying to help his brother, Jamie ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time setting off a chain of events that puts him on trial for murder with an inexperienced public defender. Now Jamie is in for the fight of his life. While he is locked up, his only hope is that long time friend Mario Pena can convince the leader of the Reyes Cartel to call a cease-fire on the streets.
