Peter Maxwell, a high-powered lawyer, experiences a spiritual rebirth after suffering a life-threatening mortality and morality check. His fate? To take on the most powerful man in the city: the owner of a tabloid newspaper. Far removed from his successful law firm, in a dingy basement office, with the help of an unusual judge and jury, “Petie” conducts a make-shift trial charging an ethically challenged businessman with “the endless manipulative use of the lowest common denominator and lack of respect for the essential mysteries of life.” This timely comedy hails from the author of the 1996 Wilma hit show, ESCAPE FROM HAPPINESS.
