Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

In this weakly limned comedy, romance, and social drama, Bob Hunt (Robert Hays) is a dedicated social worker out to save an elderly woman from having her heat shut off in the dead of winter. But his noble intentions are thwarted by Marion Edwards (Brooke Adams) a plainclothes policewoman, a barrage of municipal red tape, and an unscrupulous tycoon in the electrical power industry who will stop at nothing to make a tidy profit. When the elderly woman loses her bid for heat on a technicality and dies as a result, Bob starts a computer vendetta against the utility companies that sparks a counterattack by the industrial magnate out to enhance his own power.
