A very wealthy businessman buys a plane to carry his fiancée, a non-US citizen, into Canada. However, an unexpected landing of the plane prompts an investigation into the man's affairs based on his tax payment history. As his assistant tries to help him put things back together, secrets are revealed, and it is discovered the man is a powerful political insider who's been evading tax law. The investigation deepens and his future is even more at risk.
