Herbert Fowle (Richard Attenborough) freely admits to killing his wife, while his lawyer (Peter Sellers) attempts to mount a compelling case for his client's innocence. During the trial, the accused comes to the emotional rescue of his advocate, who desperately needs a victory. Released in the United Kingdom as The Dock Brief and based on a play by John Mortimer, this offbeat satire throws a spotlight on an imperfect legal system.
