    Synopsis. Aaron Ironwood, an orphan who once lived with the Rockfords for many years, is now a self-made multi-millionaire who travels around the country giving motivational seminars that promote “Dare to Win,” a $5,000 program that purports to teach people the secrets of his success.

After agreeing to take over control of Aaron’s company temporarily, Rockford discovers that Ironwood is wanted by both federal agents and the mob.
