"Set in the early 1980s, Priscilla: Engaging in the Game of Politics portrays Priscilla J. ("PJ") Austin, a bright, carefree, enterprising young woman strongly bound to her father--a Methodist minister and consummate politician about whom she has conflicted feelings. Shortly after she begins her career as an assistant professor of political science at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, her father mysteriously asks her to relocate closer to home (Prendergast, New York). She contacts an Ohio state senator for whom she performed an internship during her graduate studies at The Ohio State University and with whom she had an affair. The senator offers her a job as his legislative aide. She accepts. Then, once she relocates to the capital city of Columbus, she engages in the game of politics of her own volition. Throughout, the series' prequel takes a deep look at the forces which made her what she is: her family roots in highly-segregated Mississippi, her upbringing in upstate New York where subtle racism leaves its scars despite her loving father's protection, a campus date rape that leaves her with unhealed wounds and, a scintillating season as a high-powered legislative aide in a life-altering political scandal."
