Aspiring reporter Tally Atwater is ambitious but lacks talent until Warren Justice, a former White House correspondent, discovers and mentors her.

As he carefully guides her career to new heights, Warren and Tally become increasingly attracted to each other and fall in love.

Soon Tally rises through the ranks of network news - while Warren's once-stellar career sinks into the depths of mediocrity.

When Tally struggles to stay afloat at her new assignment in Philadelphia, Warren turns up to inspire her and the two begin a new career together.

Soon Tally is promoted to a national network and the dynamic duo's rise to fame continues.
