Plot Synopsis

IRS accountant Kerry Ellison begins receiving love letters from a co-worker; the intimate nature and frequency of the notes leads her to file a sexual harassment complaint. Although her boss is sympathetic, the case must be heard by a district court judge who dismisses the suit as frivolous. The obsessed suitor continues his assault while she seeks justice in a higher court. She eventually wins on appeal and changes the law for all working women.
