On the eve of the election that would make him the first Black governor of California, Franklin Wright is confronted with a situation that places him on a psychological and spiritual battleground. His decision requires that he forfeit the election or risk a life, his marriage and his very soul. "Power Play” is about the women behind this powerful man who find themselves caught in a whirlwind of personal and political intrigue that threatens to destroy them all. It is a dramatic, often times funny look at the residual effects of political scandal that examines friendship, love, integrity, public scrutiny and the question we all face today. "What are we voting for --- a candidate’s private life or the record of his or her accomplishments and the depth of his or her commitment?”
