Synopsis

When high school guidance counselor Sam Lombardo turns down the sexual advances of teenage socialite Kelly Van Ryan, she cries rape. Although he is respected in the community, he is suspended from the school and enlists the help of a personal-injury attorney Ken Bowden. Suzie Toller, another teenager from the wrong side of the tracks, comes forward with a similar story about Sam. However, Bowden puts the pressure back on her and forces her to confess to a plot she and Van Ryan concocted in order to ruin Sam. Still, the local investigating cop Ray Duquette thinks something is amiss and is convinced Sam and the two girls were in it all together hoping to weasel $8.5 million out of Kelly's mother.
