The law. When Matthew Cameron (Jar Richardson) first chose it as a profession, he chose it to serve people. Now the brand of law he practices serves mainly his corporations, his lifestyle and himself. When Alex (Kurt Fuller), an old college buddy turns up on his doorstep, he reminds Matthew of his Original Intent. Alex never lost touch with the ideas that gave his life purpose and he lures Matthew into putting his own ideals into practice. He introduces Matthew to people who desperately need his services, the homeless. Matthew is inexorably drawn into a world of despair which he has spent years trying to ignore. He sets out to save a homeless shelter where he meets helpers and helpless alike (Kris Kirstofferson and Martin Sheen). The shelter is run by Ben Reid (Robert Do'Qui) and is about to be swallowed up by a land-hungry power broker (Vince Edwards). Suddenly Matthew finds himself putting all his skills against an unyielding, uncompromising power. Slowly his world of security and comfort begins to crumble. The closer he gets to victory, the closer his family is threatened with ruin.
