Photographer George Cooper (John Heard) is documenting the lives of subterranean homeless people, a population that has mysteriously dwindled. After receiving information from a reporter, George becomes aware of a conspiracy theory about cannibalistic monsters lurking in the sewers. He teams up with the reporter, a policeman (Christopher Curry) and an eccentric who runs a soup kitchen (Daniel Stern) to fight two battles: one against the cannibals and the other against corrupt government conspiracy.

A law student uncovers a conspiracy, putting herself and others in danger. The best of movies based on John Grisham's legal thrillers (in my opinion). The last film from Alan J.
