In addition to falling in love with young, struggling attorney Mike Fallon, she adopts 16-year-old Donna Alvarez, a refugee from poverty and delinquency. But Donna's volatile past catches up with them when a terrible crime is committed by Philip Wilkott, the sociopathic son of one of Arizona's most prominent citizens.
