Plot Summary: Based on the novel by William Landay which is described as follows:

At home, Andy Barber is a quiet family man, a devoted husband and father. At work, he is a trusted senior prosecutor, the District Attorney's right hand and master trial lawyer. When a teenaged boy is found dead in the woods near Barber's suburban home, naturally he takes on the investigation, as he has countless homicides before. But the case may be Barber's undoing: in a terrifying swerve, Barber's own 14-year-old son, Jacob, is accused of the murder.

The boy insists he is innocent, and Barber rallies to his son's defense - as any father would, he thinks, as any father must. But defending Jacob exacts a terrible price. Neighbors lock their doors against him. Jacob's classmates refuse to talk. Barber's marriage begins to crumble as his beloved wife Laurie buckles under the relentless pressure of suspicion. Finally, as Jacob's trial intensifies, Barber faces a trial of his own, in which he is forced to confront his own secret history, a past he thought he'd buried long ago.
