The third instalment in the award winning 'Incident series' of films again features Walter Matthau as brilliant-but-folksy defence attorney Harmon J. Cobb.
The year is 1953. When Harmon learn that his old friend, Judge Stoddard Nell (Harry Morgan) is accused of murder, he has no choice but to step up to the bar.
Harmon's investigation reveals that the murdered man had been romantically linked with Judge Bell's estranged daughter. In fact, the victim had fathered Judge Bell's illegitimate grandson - now 13 years old. Harmon's persistent sleuthing further uncovers Judge Bell's plot to cover for his daughter, whom he believes is the real murderer.
As this spellbinding drama hurtles towards its startling conclusion, Harmon discovers yet another twist in the case: Judge Bell's daughter is actually covering for her own son, who killed his abusive father in self-defence.
