When a prominent Toronto lawyer is murdered on a foggy night in Bannerman Park, the entire city of St. John's is shaken. The RNC quickly pins the crime on Tom Fitzgerald, a down and out drinker with a troubled past. To the envy of the St. John's criminal defence bar, the high profile case ends up at the law firm of McGrath & Co. But when the lawyer handling the file, Kelly Lane, suffers a setback at the preliminary inquiry, she tries to unload the case. Despite Lane's best efforts though, David Hall, a junior associate at McGrath & Co. ends up in the unlikely position of lead counsel on the most important criminal trial of the year. David's determined efforts in bringing this case of a lifetime to its startling conclusion fuels resentment in Lane, who uses every opportunity to undermine him at the firm. But Lane's resentment is the least of David's worries when he discovers that his involvement in the case has put his own life in danger. Undeterred however, David delves deeper into the case, following the trail of a killer whose true identity will shock the community to its core.
