The NAACP, nearly about to close their doors, enlists Thurgood Marshall in what would become one of the most important court cases in history. Marshall is enlisted to help defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy white employer against allegations of sexual assault. This trial takes place in Connecticut which was a very conservative state at this time in history. Marshall is paired with Samuel Friedman, a lawyer new to the practice, and they must work together to clear the name of this chauffeur.
