All rise.
Hard-nosed liberal lawyer Roman J. Israel has been fighting the good fight forever while others take the credit. When his partner, the firm’s frontman, has a heart attack, Israel suddenly takes on that role. He soon discovers some unsettling truths about the firm--truths that conflict with his values of helping the poor and dispossessed--and finds himself in an existential crisis that leads to extreme actions.
