Storyline

In Vancouver, black professional basketball star Tyler 'Ty' Rivers has an adulterous affair with white "party animal" Nicole Alpern. When she announces the pill failed, he questions his paternity and dumps her. A few months after Noah's birth Ty demands his rights as a father, supported by his black wife, Beverly, with whom he raises two daughters. Only her remarried father stands by Nicole after her lawyer, Henry Wong, dumps her as an impossibly unpredictable, incorrigible client. No one offers to step in, except brilliant young attorney, Peter Marcheson, who wants the high-profile exposure and agrees to take the case pro bono. Marcheson wins the case, but Ty's lawyer, Daniel Gibson, takes it to the British Columbia court of Appeal, where he wins based on a racial prejudice experience argumentation. Now only the Supreme Court of Canada could set a precedent and reverse the decision. Written by KGF Vissers
