  • Sam leaps into a Southern small town lawyer. While remembering almost nothing about the law and facing 1950s racism, he must defend a young black woman accused of killing a white man from an important family.moreless

    A great Southern courtroom drama and one of several Quantum Leap episodes set in the hot and humid land State of Louisiana.



    Sam must defend a young black woman who is accused of killing a white man from a very rich and powerful family. Aside from not knowing much about the law, other then what 'Perry Mason' taught him, Sam has to confront a culture that is not only deeply racist but also sexist as well.



    This is a Quantum Leap episode with lots of tension, mystery and good old fashion television courtroom drama. When you add in the powerful indictment against racial, economic and gender prejudice, you have a great episode.moreless
