A revenge-seeking, gold-digging seductress looks to squeeze a crafty divorce lawyer for a massive payday.

Miles Massy is a ridiculously successful Los Angeles-area divorce lawyer suffering through complacency with his existence borne out of his track record; Marylin Rexroth is a professional gold-digger looking to devastate philandering real-estate tycoon husband Rex for a big-time windfall. Left with nothing after Miles beats her in court, Marylin sets her sights on revenge, utilizing her talents as an attractive seductress to outwit Miles at his own game.
