An emotionally shattered lawyer finds salvation in defending an East Indian doctor whose extreme medical practices are both saving lives and putting him on a fast track to prison.
Sounds good. Not sure of the lawyers aim, because “finds salvation” sounds like the result, not what he was hoping to achieve. But this may be splitting hairs. If he was just in it for the money but finds salvation and a new meaning to his life, great. So I am not sure if the line needs it, but what was he like before finding salvation? Emotionally shattered in okay, but how is that transformed by his work with the doctor?
When I read this logline it immediately conveys the dilemma of the doctor in choosing to save lives at the cost of going to prison. I can see a scene in which keeping to the rules of medical practice cost him a life he knew he could have saved if he had bent the rules and the struggle he must have had afterwards before choosing to break the rules and save the next lives.
I also imagine the lawyer who has probably made a fortune suing for medical malpractice descend on this doctor becoming his main antagonist only to change in the course of the movie to defending the doctor. To make it really exciting it could cost the lawyer his license and lead him to jail.
