Synopsis

When the stakes are this high, does anyone win? A thrilling and complex drama, Solid Air is set in the twin worlds of litigation and high-stakes gambling.
Robert Houston, facing an untimely death from asbestosis, finds the courage to pursue a civil case against his former employers. To the chagrin of Nicola Blyth, his young, ambitious lawyer, Robert rejects an out-of-court settlement offer. As the case becomes ever more protracted, Robert's suspicions are aroused with the sudden arrival of Robert Junior, his only son and a compulsive gambler, who soon takes up his father's quest for justice.
Beneath Junior's altruism lies an uncomfortable truth. In debt and on the run from wealthy businessman, John Doran, following a disastrous loss at the poker table, Junior's only hope is to get his hands on his father's settlement. But hope, like luck, is in short supply. As father and son set out to find a witness to testify on Robert's behalf, suspicion turns to torment as Robert learns of his son's true motives. As the story unfolds, the true cost of Junior's betrayal is revealed. http://www.solidairmovie.com
