For the Love of Money is based on the true story of an aging spinster and her infirm, mentally-challenged brother who become involved with a mother-son duo seeking to acquire the assets of the wealthy pair. It is a complicated story with tension, intrigue, and surprising twists.
A conscientious but naive trustee, Peter Spencer, tries to protect his two elderly clients, who have become unsuspecting pawns in a game of greed, control, and mental abuse. Committed to standing on principle, the trustee is confronted with dangerous and difficult choices. He steps into a hornet's nest and puts his own life in chaos and jeopardy. Truth and justice are not always the world's bottom line, and Peter unearths disturbing insights into the legal world. Three separate legal cases ensue, one of which becomes precedent-setting.
