Story

Joseph Kirkland (Andy Garcia) has recently been appointed to the United States Supreme Court and is faced with an emotional issue; abortion. Virginia Mapes (Lisa Gay Hamilton) elected to have an abortion in Alabama, just before the law was enacted and is being charged with first degree murder. The Justices who want to uphold and overturn the law are in a minority, thus making Justice Kirkland a powerful swing vote.

Justice Kirkland faces competing pro-life and pro-choice arguments from other justices, his secretary and even his wife. His final decision seeks to strike some sort of middle ground between the two political positions.
