When journalism prodigy Carson Stewart's life of wealth, fame, and power came crashing down, he imagined his reputation damaged beyond repair. In a last ditch effort to rebuild his career, he accepts a freelance job from a friend at the Wall Street Journal. Carson is charged with writing a story about the U.S. Representative with the highest approval rating on Capitol Hill, Clara Becker. In line with his characteristic cynicism, he is certain that a sensational story lays behind the facade of integrity and goodwill, and is determined to root it out at all costs.

Sophomore congressman from New York, Ryan Burr, has his eye on the White House and his finger on the trigger for anyone who stands in his way. No other roadblock is as formidable as the noble congresswoman from Texas. So, when Ryan discovers Carson's checkered past and intended story, he befriends the eager journalist. Soon, Carson is caught in an elaborate game of power that could take down one of the greatest political leaders of the generation. Fearing that he has discovered his unwitting role in the game too late, Carson crashes to the bottom of a bottle for what seems like the final blow, and is plucked up by none other than Clara Becker.

Along the way to recovery, Clara teaches Carson the three "Laws of Life" that guide her daily activities. Through her recounted experiences and stories, Carson realizes the power that these principles can have on the path to personal success.
