Maria Palmer, a widowed mother whose husband was Army killed in action, is recently hired as a low-level Accounting Assistant for Lyon Earthwide. Maria is unaware that she stands to inherit the very same, global technology company she works for... if, according to Adelaide's will, she can stay employed there for one year!
Against her is Rupert Nelson, CEO of Lyon Earthwide, who stands to get control of Lyon Earthwide if he can cause Maria to quit. Nelson assigns Douglas Minton to serve as Maria's boss, with the specific instructions to secretly make Maria's days serving in a cube-farm an absolute hell on earth... so she'll get frusterated and quit before the year is over!
However, Maria is a tough and dedicated soul. No matter how many attempts or how Douglas tries to sabotage Maria's working efforts, she sticks with the job... and the year is about to pass!!
As Maria is a strong and enduring soul, Nelson determines that it may take murder to get Maria out of the picture and directs Douglas to do the deed!
Will Douglas, who has never, previously let professional ethics or morals stand in his way, go so far as to kill the young, hard-working mother with whom he’s fallen in love?
