Keywords: Crime

A lawyer's attempts to dabble in the lucrative drug trade draw him into the dark depths of the Mexican criminal underworld.

ABSTRACT
A high-powered lawyer -- referred to in the film as "The Counselor" -- attends a party at a penthouse owned by a man named Reiner, where is encouraged to "capitalize on [his] position of power" by entering the drug trade. Taking his buddy up on his suggestion, The Counselor decides to take part in a drug deal with a four thousand percent rate of return against the advice of business partner Westray, placing him in the crosshairs of the notoriously merciless Mexican drug cartels after his deal goes south and resulting in a tragic fate for his girlfriend and partner.
