The Advocate is a legal thriller about grief, ambition and the quest for absolute justice. Ray Shekar (Sachin Mehta) is a defense attorney with a spotless acquittal record that keeps him mired in the trenches of criminal law despite his repeated efforts to leave. When Ray is approached by Allyson Daugherty (Kristina Klebe), a socialite accused of murdering her husband, Ray’s ambition and curiosity prompt him to sign on as her defense counsel as a means to uncovering the truth about her guilt or innocence. Soon Ray finds himself in the middle of a twisted who-done-it in which he must keep one step ahead of a persistent police detective (Michael Raynor), who begins to suspect the troubling secret behind Ray's success and sees the Daugherty case as an opportunity to settle an old score.
Within the framework of a mystery, The Advocate explores the murky waters of the justice system and the people who make it their calling to navigate it. In the deeply flawed, yet never surpassed tradition of "innocent until proven guilty," getting away with a crime can be murder...
