Sixteen-year-old Noah is a troublemaker.

His father is a hotshot barrister.

This is not a good combination.

When Noah gets caught mucking up at school, his dad sends him to work at his aunt's law firm during the holidays to 'learn responsibility' and 'fix his attitude'.

There he meets Jacinta - the cute intern who knows her way around a photocopier, and Casey - the wicked witch of the firm.

Noah becomes involved in a case where a woman has been killed during a mugging gone wrong. There's a grieving husband, a guilty employer, and an open and shut case involving lots of money.

But right and wrong, and crime and punishment are soon entangled as Noah realises that things are seldom what they seem.
