The James Bradley-Rick Majors debate team has just one more match to win before they have a shot at "The States," which is only their life's ambition. But who should stand in their way? Someone they've lost to twenty three times: Jeff Belmont, the conceited, overbearing self-proclaimed "debating machine." And to make matters worse, Belmont is teamed up with Karen Anderson, who was supposed to be Rick's "dream date." What transpires when these two teams lock heads is a powerfully dramatic conflict between love and power revealed through rich language and the persuasive argument of debate.
