Plea or not to Plea


A defense Attorney must prove his client is innocent against overwhelming odds.

Our Review

A stunning-to-look-at, but not much -to-watch short film, Plea or Not to Plea is a simple dialogue between two confident lawyers on opposite sides of a case, trying to reach a settlement before their hearing. It's a story we've all seen, and a story we will see again if the details of the case itself are unique and engaging. In this short film, however, there is no information on what the case is about, and it focuses entirely on the egotistical chemistry between the lawyers themselves, which provides fluff without plot. The cinematography is brilliant….
