Against this backdrop four very different people are about to collide, Thyme Tyler, educated and ambitious, the industry's only female African-American plant manager struggles to gain complete professional parity, revealing the bitterest of betrayals; Ron Davis, the plant's fiery union leader, protects his people and stays cool even at ground zero of red-hot labor unrest, yet refuses to confront his failings, throwing his private life into turmoil; khan Davis, Ron's brilliant, feisty niece, is pulled by the lure of big money and the temptations of an irresistibly sensual older lover; and R.C. Richardson, Champion's biggest car dealer, who built his fortune through breathtaking risks and long-shot schemes, is dangerously close to losing it all in his lust for khan's body and the big win.
