He’d like to keep that going, but he’s in severe debt and needs to make some severe changes. He gets the idea to sell off some of his businesses to Ray Loewen (Camp) who runs a corporation of funeral homes and is incredibly wealthy. The deal goes sour with Jeremiah suing Ray over the contract. Jeremiah’s legal team includes his longtime attorney Mike (Ruck) and the young Hal (Athie) It’s a massive case, and it’s Hal’s idea to bring in the big guns and hire Jamie Foxx’s character, Willie Gary.
