Český
V jednom malém městě v Nové Anglii zemřelo několik dětí na leukémii, protože místní chemická továrna zamořila spodní vody. Blazeovaný právník Jan Schlichtmann přebírá komplikovaný případ zprvu jen proto, že ho láká tučný honorář. On a jeho kolegové z kanceláře však mají před sebou těžký úkol, neboť oba bohaté koncerny, které firmu provozují, si najímají věhlasné právníky. Zprvu zištný postoj právníka se však v průběhu soudního jednání, kdy dochází ke konfrontaci s dětmi a rodiči, promění v touhu dosáhnout spravedlnosti pro nebohé oběti.

Dansk
Jan Schlickmann (John Travolta) er en kynisk advokat. Han får en sag, som han i begyndelsen bare vil have overstået. Han finder dog ud af, at den potentielt kunne være millioner værd. Han bliver besat af sagen i et sådan omfang, at han er villig til at opgive alt - inklusiv hans karriere og hans klients mål, for at kunne vinde sagen imod alle odds.

Deutsch
Jan Schlichtman ist Anwalt für Körperverletzung. Er ist erfolgsorientiert und hat wenig Gerechtigkeitssinn; aus dem Unglück anderer schlägt er Kapital, deshalb ist er erfolgreich. Als sich eine Gruppe verzweifelter Eltern an seine Kanzlei wendet und um seine Hilfe bittet, lehnt er zunächst ab.

ελληνικά
Ο Τζαν Σλίκμαν είναι ένας κυνικός δικηγόρος που ξεκινάει να ξεφορτωθεί μια υπόθεση αλλά στην πορεία ανακαλύπτει πως μπορεί να του αποφέρει εκατομμύρια. Η υπόθεση γίνεται η εμμονή του, μέχρι το σημείο που προτίθεται να παρατήσει τα πάντα - ακόμα και την καριέρα του και τις επιθυμίες του πελάτη του, προκειμένου να συνεχίσει να την χειρίζεται.

Español
El abogado Jan Schlichtmann sigue la investigación de dos compañías, una dedicada a la manufactura de pieles y otra, distribuidora de comida. Ambas están acusadas de verter residuos tóxicos en el río que abastece una localidad de Massachussets. Debido a esta contaminación, varios niños del pueblo han muerto de leucemia, un caso que no sale a la luz pública hasta que los padres de los afectados emprenden acciones legales.

Jan Schlichtmann on kyyninen ja kovapalkkainen lakimies. Hän ottaa hoitaakseen vain rahakkaimmat jutut, jotka pystyy sopimaan truvallisesti lakituvan ulkopuolella. Mutta kun eräs yksinkertaiselta näyttänyt tapaus osoittautuukin tavallista hankalammaksi, Schlichtmann on tavoistaan poiketen valmis uhraamaan uransa, maineensa ja omaisuutensa saadakseen asiakkaalleen oikeutta!

Français
Dans les années 1980, au cours d'une emission radiophonique, Jan Schlichtmann, brillant avocat spécialiste dans les procès civils, est apostrophe par Anne Anderson qui lui reproche de négliger une plainte déposée quelques mois plus tot. Il la rencontre a Woburn, une bourgade du Massachusetts, et apprend que près de trente enfants de la ville sont atteints de leucémie provoquée par deux sociétés qui déversent régulièrement des substances chimiques a proximité de puits d'eau potable. L'avocat décide de défendre huit familles contre les toutes-puissantes sociétés industrielles.

"תביעה אזרחית" הוא מותחן משפטי המבוסס על סיפור אמיתי. ג'אן שליכמן, עו"ד לענייני פגיעות אישיות אשר נחישותו העזה ודבקותו במטרה מסבכות אותו בתיק משפטי המאיים להרסו. התיק, שנראה פשוט לכאורה, מתפתח לתביעה משפטית מסובכת ובעלת ממדים רבים. זהו מותחן משפטי סבוך ודרמה צורבת אשר לוקחת אותנו מהנהרות המורעלים של אברז'ונה ריבר שבניו-אינגלנד, אל משרדי עורכי-הדין היוקרתיים ובתי המשפט בדאון - טאון בוסטון. שנות ה- 80.

Magyar
A 80-as években a massachusettsi Woburnban meghalt nyolc gyermek leukémiában. A családok pert indítottak Amerika két legnagyobb cége ellen, mert meg voltak róla győződve, hogy ezek a cégek fertőzték meg a város ivóvizét azokkal a vegyi anyagokkal, melyek végül gyermekeik halálához vezettek. A minden szempontból rendkívül nehéznek látszó ügyet Jan Schlichtmann ügyvéd vállalta fel, kinek a mottója ez volt: "Legyek gazdag és híres azzal, hogy jót teszek." Ám a sztárügyvéd ezzel az éveken áthúzódó bonyolult üggyel túl nagy fába vágta a fejszéjét, és az igazsághoz vezető út egyre inkább az érzelmi és szakmai összeomlás felé vezetett. Egy megtörtént, nagyszabású bírósági per hiteles krónikája.

Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. It's more than baseball, it's a revolution – one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he's tearing out the heart and soul of the game.

Encouraged by Leonard's stunning recovery, Sayer administers the drug to the other patients. The story of their friendship during this emotional journey is a testament to both the tenderness of the human heart and the strength of the human soul.
