Harriet, Matthew and Malcolm couldn't be any more different. Harriet is a curmudgeonly ex-patent lawyer who, having just been fired from her cushy job, is completely disillusioned with her success and looking for a fresh start. Her world unexpectedly collides with Malcolm's - a young man trying to figure out life.
When he finds out Harriet is a lawyer, he begs her to represent him in an upcoming criminal case. Matthew, a dreamer at heart and also recently fired from his job as a high school teacher, is introduced to Harriet through Malcolm, a previous student of his.
When these three cross paths, they realise they're all looking for a fresh start. Now, the most unlikely of people are starting a law practice in the most unlikely of places - a rundown shoe store.
