Puncture


Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a
functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his
longtime friend and partner, is the straightlaced and responsible yin
to Mike's yang. Their mom-and-pop personal-injury law firm is getting
by, but things really 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. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper
into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on
exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of
their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting
pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their
business to the 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.
