Cutter Boutique Classics, a Fifth Avenue garment boutique owned by a group of wealthy Dutch citizens, needs help seeking American management. They enlist a prestigious New York law firm, and reluctantly Philip Bartlett becomes a principal in the contract. Philip is young and somewhat inexperienced, and this is t the dream assignment he's been waiting for. Due to his involvement with the boutique, his sister, Theresa, has a fleeting interlude with Chet Doyle, one of the boutique's Dutch owners. Neither Philip r Theresa kws, however, that Chet is in charge of Cutter's shady dealings. To make matters worse, Theresa makes the acquaintance of the boutique's other owners and soon finds herself in the crosshairs of one of the two women-sisters from Amsterdam. Cutter's cash flow is massive, which draws the tice of the FBI. Investigations abound, and Philip is afraid for his career and his sister. Relationships are at times tender and yet tentative. It's sometimes hard to tell who comes out on top-especially when so many lives are involved.
