Jenny Lee is a tennis all-star known for her acerbic wit and temper. When a mysterious accident ends her career, Jenny finds out that her agent ran away with her money. Now penniless and forgotten by her sport, she decides to restart her career and seek financial support. She embarks in a search for her father who abandoned her when she was a child, but soon tracks down a man with a shady past who left a trail of family secrets.
