Lawyer Bruce Dunbar (Phil Daniels) has learnt through experience that he needs to break the rules in order to get the results he wants. His practice is a business and he knows how to work the system.

Representing juveniles and petty criminals in the magistrates' court, Dunbar does what he can to get the best outcome, but only if it benefits him financially.

When his mentor and partner dies, he hires the well-educated and articulate Theodore Gulliver (Ray Emmett-Brown) to share the load. Gulliver, who believes passionately in the justice system, is shocked by Dunbar's irreverent attitude. His own commitment to the job is steadfast and his naivety leads him to think he can really make a difference - an attitude which grates on the cynical Dunbar.

Squaring up to this team in the courtroom is CPS lawyer Sarah Beckenham (Georgia Mckenzie), a tough adversary who's more than a match for Dunbar and Gulliver.
