A man has been killed in a laboratory explosion. His daughter tries to protect his legacy (he has been linked to flying saucer sightings and interviews with some pretty wacko people). One of the government's big boys is sent to investigate just exactly this scientist was up to. The daughter counters him at every pass, but finally relents under threat. As with so many of these offerings, there is another government invasion into a private citizen's personal life. The daughter is threatened and choices are taken from her. Of course, it all comes out in the wash, but getting there is pretty uncomfortable. The young woman, who is being undermined, actually begins to fall for the government agent/scientist.
