Synopsis:Can Deena, a pro-bono defense lawyer, get a fair trial for this Saudi Muslim in New York City only a few years after 9/11? The story comes from an actual incident when a New York businessman accused a young Saudi of raping and robbing him at knifepoint. Deena, who is Jewish, takes this Muslim's case because she believes even the worst people deserve counsel to ensure valid evidence and punishment not revenge.

But a prosecutor wants to be the first to convict the first Saudi of any crime in NY since the attacks. To force a plea deal, she locks the defendant in a cellblock reserved for gangs, but he refuses to take 10 instead of 25+ years. Deena wonders if her client might actually be innocent and contacts the accuser's wife. Tangles of lies start unravelling.

Some people work through their mutual fears and prejudices to connect deeply with their shared humanity. Some cannot take that journey. An unexpected warmth builds between the Jewish lawyers, her gay Muslim client and his accuser's Christian wife
