The judge questions Vin Diesel about him representing himself.

Sent to prison on a drug charge, Jackie DiNorscio (Diesel) refuses to turn government witness against his former associates in the New Jersey Lucchesi crime family. However, prosecutor Sean Casey mounts a huge case under the RICO statutes involving dozens of defendants and their attorneys, including Nick Calabrese. For Casey, it looks like an open and shut case, until Jackie, who is already serving 30 years, decides to defend himself. Initially dismissed as a lunatic, Jackie has a forceful personality and an intrinsic understanding of the legal process that gradually change the course of the trial.
