Cable news anchor Christy Colleran (Kathleen Turner) and her cagey boss, John L. Sullivan (Burt Reynolds), have a long history together: They used to be married. But now Christy is set to leave journalism and her ex-husband forever by moving to New York City with her fiancé, retail mogul Blaine Bingham (Christopher Reeve). Since Sullivan still has feelings for her, he hatches a plan to keep Christy around by assigning her to a hot news story she can't resist.
