Synopsis

A village idiot with a taste for murder.
 

A juror fresh out of law school.
 

An ignored trial error.

When neophyte attorney G.W. Chism receives a jury duty summons too late to excuse himself from jury selection, he lands the role of foreman on a disturbing murder trial. Despite the knowledge of a trial error, the jury finds No Mercy Percy guilty and sentences him to death.

Fifteen years later, Percy Kilbourne is no longer considered a village idiot. In prison, Kilbourne’s genius intellect is uncovered when a guard explains a joke to him and he transforms into a cultivated and reformed convict. When a tape is discovered that could overturn his death sentence, Kilbourne requests attorney G.W. Chism to represent him.

Haunted by the mistake in the original Kilbourne trial, G.W. Chism dedicates his career to serving the letter of the law, even when it is blind to true justice. When a judge orders him to represent Kilbourne, G.W. follows the letter of the law, and Kilbourne walks free, setting into motion a demonic killer’s revenge.
