Drowning in debt after graduating from a 4th-tier law school, Grayson Hernandez takes the only job he can find as a messenger for the Supreme Court. His name says it all; Hispanic in a preppie world. It’s hard after all the work to find himself on the outside watching the best and the brightest who get to serve as Supreme Court clerks.

Douglas rewards Gray by making him one of his clerks and, overnight, Gray is drafting memos and opinions on some of the most pressing issues of the day. It’s a new world of highbrow debates and upscale dinners with new friends. Gray has entered the inner sanctum.
