Madman. Genius. Playboy. Friend. Fool. Lawyer.
Plot: A David and Goliath law drama about a drug-addicted lawyer who takes on a health supply corporation while battling his own personal demons.
Story: Idealistic lawyers Mike Weiss and Paul Danziger are partners. Mike is a drug-addict and Paul is a family man with a pregnant wife. When nurse Vicky Rogers seeks them out, they learn that she contracted AIDS a couple of years ago when she was accidentally pinpricked with a contaminated needle by a violent patient. Vicky shows a retractable safety needle invented by engineer Jeffrey Matthew Dancort, who owns the Safety Point Company, but is unable to sell his product to any hospital from the United Medical group, apart from San Antonio Memorial. Danziger and Weiss accept the case and go to court against United Medical, defended by powerful lawyer Nathaniel Price. Soon, they see all the doors closed in their fight against the powerful mafia of the medical supply system.
Did you know: This movie is based on a true story and had the blessing of real-life Weiss and Danziger. Weiss and Danzinger had been approached by an inventor having trouble selling a safety syringe developed to protect health care workers from accidentally being infected by dirty needles due to a major industry needle maker and hospital group purchasing organizations pushing back against the introduction of the new, safer syringes.
