The Lansing Tower is a true story at the turn of the millennium in Michigan that begins with a sudden visit to China. A dozen years after initially meeting, two entrepreneurs lives unexpectedly cross again and become entangled by chance, hardship and tragedy. What starts out as an innocent idea of going to Hong Kong and mainland China in search of antiques takes a sudden turn in the wrong direction for Paul and his new bride with a 9/11 lockdown. Meanwhile, a tremendous fire, caused by a car parked inside instead of outside, destroys Bondo’s building and leaves his business on its back, left for dead in ashes. Immigration, probate, civil, and criminal issues begin to surface from unexpected directions. A couple of local lawyers smell blood money, and then some big city law firms get involved. These unexpected individuals, along with a few family members and some locals from years passed, all arrive with their own agendas. Some are needed, some not so much. With all this unwanted convergence, an illness arrives also. Suddenly, raising their daughters and their businesses becomes quite complicated. Tears, tenacity, and heroic strategy carry the day in Michigan and are felt all the way back to China. A battle of wills like no other, it’s a story that needs to be told.
