Naz picks up a young woman, Andrea, after hijacking his father’s cab one night with the purpose of attending a popular party. He ends up canceling his plans to attend the party so he may spend the evening with her. Naz awakens from a night of sex and drugs with Andrea to discover her stabbed to death in her bedroom; he has no memory of what transpired. Naz flees the scene but is quickly detained for a minor traffic offense.
At the station, he refuses to receive calls from his parents, who are concerned about him and trying to reach him. When the police search Naz, they discover a knife that matches the probable murder weapon in his pocket, and witnesses identify him. Naz is probed by investigator Dennis Box and eventually requests a counsel, which he does not receive until world-weary defense attorney John Stone hears about the case and steps in to represent Naz.
