Hotshot Florida defense lawyer Kevin Lomax has never lost a case. In Gainesville, Kevin is defending a schoolteacher, Mr. Gettys, against a charge of child molestation. During the trial, he realises through the furtive actions of his client that he is guilty. During a recess, a reporter speaks to Kevin briefly in the restroom and tells Kevin that "nobody wins 'em all." Kevin then decides to go forward to try to win the case, even though he knows his client is guilty. Ultimately, he wins the case after harshly questioning the young victim (Barbara) and reveals that she had other children lie about Mr. Gettys, though her explanation is that "she didn't want to be the only one" to come forward.
