Verdict Revised

Markus Haglund is a charismatic and brilliant lawyer, but a tormented, cynical human being. Ten years ago, he got an alleged murderer acquitted, who then promptly raped and killed a young mother and her daughter. After trying to drink away his sorrow, Haglund is offered a new job: as head of a class of four students who take on the cases of convicted felons who claim they're innocent. They review the cases, appeal and often get the prisoners freed - but are the acquitted really innocent?
