Jan Schlickmann is a cynical lawyer who goes out to ‘get rid of’ a case, only to find out it is potentially worth millions. The case becomes his obsession, to the extent that he is willing to give up everything—including his career and his clients’ goals—in order to continue the case against all odds.
