In Diminished Capacity, a criminal defense lawyer is assigned to represent a young man who is at best only marginally guilty and may well be innocent. Along the way we meet other lawyers, a court reporter, a judge, a college professor, another defendant in the case, a student of the professor who is also a waitress, and a psychologist, all of whom, like in a Dickens novel, seem to have connections to everyone else. The cast includes: Tom Ammirato, Bruce Apar, Melissa Chanza, Lourdes Laifer, Dianne Roxy Pennington, Fred Rueck, Steve Schnapper, Gary Simon, Donna L. White and Nadja Winter.
