影片讲述了一个费城最大的公司律师事务所的高级律师Andrew Beckett (Hanks 饰)的故事。虽然Beckett 与他的同伴Miguel álvarez (Antonio Banderas 饰)住在一起，但Beckett 对自己在律师事务所的同性恋行为并不公开，也不公开他感染了艾滋病毒。在他被分配到公司最新也是最重要的案子那天，该公司的一位合伙人注意到贝克特前额上有一个小病灶(卡波西肉瘤)。不久之后，Beckett 在家里工作了几天，试图找到一种方法来掩盖他的小病灶。在家里时，他完成了对被指派的案件的申诉，然后将申诉提交给他的办公室，并指示他的助手在第二天向法院提起诉讼……
The film tells the story of Andrew Beckett (Hanks), a senior associate at the largest corporate law firm in Philadelphia. Although he lives with his partner Miguel álvarez (Antonio Banderas), Beckett is not open about his homosexuality at the law firm, nor the fact he had contracted HIV. On the day he is assigned the firm’s newest and most important case, one of the firm’s partners notices a small lesion (Kaposi’s sarcoma) on Beckett’s forehead. Shortly thereafter, Beckett stays home from work for several days to try to find a way to hide his lesions. While at home, he finishes the complaint for the case he has been assigned and then brings it to his office, leaving instructions for his assistants to file the complaint in court on the following day, which marks the end of the statute of limitations for the case. Beckett suffers from bowel spasms at home and is rushed to the hospital. Later that morning, while still at the ER, he receives a frantic call from the firm asking for the complaint, as the paper copy cannot be found and there are no copies on the computer’s hard drive. However, the complaint is finally discovered and is filed with the court at the last possible moment. The following day, Beckett is dismissed by the firm’s partners, who had previously referred to him as their “friend”, but now question his professional abilities in light of the misplaced document.
Beckett believes that someone deliberately hid his paperwork to give the firm a pretext to fire him, and that the firing is actually as a result of his diagnosis with AIDS. He asks several attorneys to take his case, including personal injury lawyer Joe Miller (Washington), with whom he had been involved in a previous case. Miller, who is admittedly homophobic and knows little about Beckett’s disease, initially declines to take the case and immediately visits his doctor to find out if he could have contracted the disease through shaking Beckett’s hand. The doctor explains the methods of HIV infection. The doctor then offers to take a sample of Miller’s blood, suspecting that Miller was asking about AIDS because he suspected he had contracted it and was trying to hide it. Miller dismisses the request by laughing it off, thinking it a joke.
