Dark, gripping and morally complex, Your Honor tells the story of Micah Alkoby, a respected judge who is on the cusp of a big promotion. After his troubled teenage son is involved in a hit-and-run, this all changes. The victim of this accident turns out to be a member of a notorious criminal family that runs its own system of justice.
