Witty, charismatic Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive working for an electronics giant. He's well liked at the office, but he lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. But all that will change one evening when Jason meets Kurt Semko, a former Special Forces officer, and gets Kurt a job in Corporate Security. Soon, good things start to happen for Jason and bad things start to happen to Jason's rivals.
