Storyline

Jake Cornell devoted his life to running the Seattle basketball team he inherited from his father, but his neglected marriage broke down and now his kids Barton and Alexandra side with mother Frances, who is determined to sell the ailing club. Jake can't bully or persuade them, so the board puts Frances in charge, who is clueless about the sports but enjoys modernizing marketing and PR, to Jake's horror. His last shot is winning his family back, but is out of the courting game and she's more cynical then Barton and Alexandra, whose goals he can more easily support. A arbitrage court must settle the club's and family's fate. Written by KGF Vissers
