Carla Bhem works as a secretary for a property development company. Her job, basically, is everything: from handling files and answering the phone to drafting estimates and dealing with suppliers. First to arrive in the morning, last out at night... Her reward? Be paid like a serf, treated like mud and ordered around like a dog. Carla has had enough. She thinks she deserves better. Only trouble is, in a male-dominated society, what hope is there for a 35-year-old woman with a so-so physique and a hearing aid in both ears? The solution's name is Paul Angeli, the new trainee she manages to have hired. Paul is 25 years old and completely unskilled in property development - in fact, he's clueless. But he makes up for it in other ways: he's a thief, he's fresh out of jail, and good-looking into the bargain. When Carla gets squeezed out of credit for a company deal, she gets Paul to help her turn the tables. From there it is but a step to larger crimes
