Killing Time is the true story of the rise and fall of notorious Melbourne criminal defense lawyer Andrew Fraser. His clients ranged from accused cop killers to the rich and famous including international businessman Alan Bond. His obsession with wealth and materialism was fuelled by the halcyon 1980's. When his social coke consumption spiraled into a $5,000 a week habit, his judgment became unsound and he crossed the line into the criminal milieu. This eventually saw him sentenced to seven years in a maximum security prison for his involvement in a large scale importation of cocaine.
