Big Mouth revolves around an incompetent lawyer who only has a 10% chance of winning in trials. One day, he takes over a murder case, only to find documents and records of the law battles fought by low-to-middle class lawyers.

The incompetent lawyer finds out that these third-rate lawyers are left with no choice but to become the villains and do the dirty work for people with money and power. It is their only way to survive and protect their family from harm.
