A rookie lawyer gets the chance to try one of the biggest oil cases in history but finds himself falling for the wife of a ruthless mob boss, putting his career and their lives in jeopardy.
Rookie lawyer Alec Brno wins a high-profile case for his firm and is offered one of the biggest fraud cases in history. A banking firm headed by Dan Hedaya’s eyepatch-wearing General Rand is accused of negligence in an oil scam but Alec comes to believe that there was no negligence involved; instead one of Rand’s employees was being paid off by the mob.
Setting out to prove his theory, Alec discovers there’s a witness to the mafia payouts – the office manager who typed out and delivered the cheques. When he eventually tracks her down, it’s to a crack house in the Bronx. Annie is a junky and the wife of violent mob boss Phil Anwar.
Alec needs her to testify but before long he realises he is falling for his troubled key witness. But although she has left her husband, Anwar is keeping tabs on her and soon figures out that the man she is seeing could ruin him – personally and professionally.
The Warrior Class was made in 2004. It was written and directed by Alan Hruska.
