Based on the 2011 play by Sean Minogue, Prodigals is about a young man named Wesley (David Alpay) who has returned to his hometown of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario after a five-year absence, to testify at a friend’s murder trial. The suspect’s sister and Wesley’s friend Nina (Kaniehtiio Horn) asks him to defend her brother in court, believing his background as a big-time lawyer will help them win the case. But Wesley is harboring a dark secret – he dropped out of law school and never became a lawyer. When the defendant’s lawyer mistakes Wesley for a qualified lawyer, he’s hired on to help win the case and accepts, believing he can help without actually doing anything illegal.
