Sex, Money, Bad Faith,Laughter, Power Struggles, Betrayal, Politics and even death -- in a law school. Who Knew?
Three bright young professors all vie for promotion and tenure at a law school. Not unusual, except all three have secrets that could threaten their careers as well as their personal lives.
One, a seemingly happily married father of two, is plagued by the fear that his long-ago brief affair with the dean's son will be discovered. Now the dean's son has returned home and threatens to expose him. Another, a single black female, is having a torrid affair with the president of the university board of trustees. Complicating matters is his wife's suspicions, his quest to be the next governor of the state and the dean's son's possible knowledge of his infidelity. The third candidate is a married woman desperately trying to escape her blue collar past. When her long-estranged husband shows up on the scene to threaten trouble, the situation gets complicated, especially since the dean's mean-spirited son begins to torment her about her past. Suddenly, the dean's son winds up dead. Who's to blame?
