Acting coach Angela Masters (Elisabeth Röhm) becomes rich by giving criminal defendants personality and appearance makeovers so they can win acquittals from gullible juries.
An actor who has a years-long crush on Angela, Gary Langston (Sean Patrick Flanery) - who had a TV series several years ago and has been forgotten by Hollywood, continues to work with her as a coach in Seattle, hoping for his big break. Unable to express his love for her personally, he gives her a puppy, a puppy care book and a $10,000 insurance policy for the little guy. If something happens to Angela, the money will provide for his care.
Life is lush until she overhears a mobster she helped set free plan a heinous crime. When he believes she eavesdropped, he sets out to kill her.
Police and prosecutors aren't enthusiastic about helping her - she's skewed too many "tight" cases for them and has been responsible for too many creeps back out on the street again.
Instead of running away or hiding, she faces the bad guy - who now comes off as a good guy to juries (thanks to her earlier work) - and testifies against him in court. On the witness stand she goes a bit mad trying to convince the jury of what a lowlife he really is - they don't believe her. Her crazy testimony is carried on TV all over the world -- even weather stations -- and makes front-page news everywhere as well.
After a few surprises, Karma, love and justice prevail. Finally.
