Madeline Scott is the uncompromising head of an underdog criminal defense firm. Her mission to set innocent people free stems from being wrongfully convicted of murder when she was 18. Her partner at the firm, Easy Boudreau, is the lawyer who helped set her free after spending 10 years of her life behind bars.
While she may be a hero and victim to some, Madeline's bold tactics are not appreciated by Gore Bellows, the prosecutor who secured her conviction and still believes in her guilt.
But despite Bellows' incessant quest to see her locked up, Madeline puts her energy towards defending others, even while fighting to maintain her innocence and possibly find the real killer in her own case.
