Jessica inherits from uncle Cyrus a holding company, the only asset being the crucial 4% in the Leopards professional American football team which two groups control at 48% each, and executive lawyer Brad Lockwood fails to make her sign proxy powers for it before she checks it out herself. She meets player Zak Farrell, his wife Kathy and adopted mute daughter Jill. Businessman Phil Kreuger is dead-eager to buy Jessica out for one share-holders group and move the franchise to a bigger city, coach Pat Patillo bids against him for the other group which wants to keep the team home.

Clyde Pitts finds out -at peril- who else had motive and opportunity till she can set a trap...
