Synopsis by Mark Deming
A young woman's romantic dalliance with a criminal unexpectedly changes her life for the better in this drama. Heather (Hollis McLaren) is the daughter of John (Denholm Elliott), the owner of a large and successful paper company. Heather falls in love with Paul (Michael Margotta), a low level gangster whose attitudes represent a significant change from the sheltered existence she's led. When a rival firm tries to strong-arm John into selling his company, he refuses, leading them to hire hit man Philip (Lee Broker) to eliminate him. Heather inherits the paper company, and with some help from Paul, she learns how to deal with her new responsibilities and their rivals without being intimidated. Partners was directed by Don Owen, who previously made the ground-breaking Canadian independent films Nobody Waved Goodbye and Ladies & Gentlemen: Mr. Leonard Cohen.
