Synopsis (reworded from above website)
"Madman. Genius. Playboy. Friend. Fool. Lawyer."
Based on a true story.
Mike Weiss (Chris Evans), a talented young Houston lawyer with a drug problem and Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), the straight-laced and responsible one, are partners (and friends) in their personal injury law firm. Things get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job.
Weiss’ and Danziger’s investigations into the case, threaten to expose a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy but heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Invested in their own principles, the two underdog lawyers are out of their depth, and the mounting pressure of the case pushes their business to breaking point.
Brothers and directors Mark and Adam Kassen bring this real-life story to the screen with all the urgency and passion of the subjects themselves. The result is an effective issue-driven drama that finds its footing in a contemporary David and Goliath story.
PUNCTURE was written by Chris Lopata from story by Ela Thier and Paul Danziger and was executive-produced by Jeffrey Gou & Joan Huang, Paul Danziger and Rod de Llano & Craig Cohen.
