Richard, it seems, has demons and a past but with the help of motivational tapes he’s determined to succeed.
Soon their professional rivalry explodes as the two men fight it out in corporate and psychological tests to determine who gets the dream promotion to supermarket store manager! A clear case of two guys, one job and no rules!
