High powered lawyer Claire Kubik finds her world turned upside down when her husband, who she thought was Tom Kubik, is arrested and is revealed to be Ron Chapman. Chapman is on trial for a murder of Latin American villagers while he was in the Marines. Claire soon learns that to navigate the military justice system, she'll need help from the somewhat unconventional Charlie Grimes; meanwhile, Claire's sister, Jackie, is falling in love with wet-behind-the-ears Lieutenant Embry assigned as the official defense lawyer. And most of the eyewitnesses have rather too conveniently died.

Agent Mullins! I just need a minute of your time!
FBI Agent Mullins:
Somehow I'm confident it's not my rugged good looks to which I owe the honor of this visit.
Did He Do It, Or Didn't He?
This was an involving story of a military man accused of murdering
civilians 15 years earlier and then going A.W.O.L. The whole story
revolves around one question: did he do it or is he innocent?
That question keeps the viewer guessing for much of the film and
provides some very good suspense. It's another film, however, in which
there is a strong anti-U.S. military flavor, so typical in films since
Also, once you know the ending, I doubt if this would be a movie you
would watch more than once. However, it's definitely worth a look and
will entertain you for about two hours. Ashley Judd, Jim Caviezel and
Morgan Freeman are three attractive lead actors, all interesting to
watch, as usual.
