For his first case, he must defend two Marines stationed at Guantanamo Bay who have been accused of murdering a colleague, another Marine named Santiago who was known for his underperformance and insolence. Tensions arise between the inexperienced and lazy Kaffee — who wants to arrange a plea bargain — and another lawyer, Lieutenant Commander JoAnne Galloway — who believes the case should go to court.
