Laurel Ayres is a bright financial analyst with more brains than most of her male colleagues. She's fed up with following the rules to get ahead, and when she's passed over for a well-deserved promotion, Laurel decides the fairer sex has played fair long enough. She sets about creating the perception that she's formed a partnership with a powerful financial whiz. The deception works, and while the speculators are musing about the identity of her enigmatic associate, Laurel maneuvers a number of successful financial deals and proves that men don't have a monopoly on creative enterprise.
