A young lawyer in Los Angeles lives alone with his cat until he meets a young lady
and in one night together they agree to marry. Their plan is placed on hold because
her mother kills her father and Lionel (the central character) is asked to defend her in
court. After a successful outcome, the young couple marries only to become involved
with a crime boss's daughter Valentina. This leads to tragedy for Lionel and almost
costs the life of him and Valentina. Her father is killed in a gangland shootout and
his family is placed in danger from the new crime boss. Lionel must find a way to
prevent him from killing Valentine and her family.
