After the devastating news of her father's death, she becomes the sole heir to a billion dollar industry. Suddenly thrust into the complicated world of company politics, wherein she is unsure of whom to trust, she takes comfort in the company of Rhys Williams, her father's right-hand man. The board of the company comprises of her extended family members, Rhys is the only one who is not a part of the family. Each board member has his own reasons to make the company public and inspite of the immense pressure from them, she refuses to comply. This decision makes her the target of repeated assassination and sabotage attempts.
