"...An engagingly provocative essay about corporate power as manifested through sexual politics..."
Based on Michael Crichton's controversial bestseller, a powerful woman at a computer software company jeapordizes a man's career when he spurns her sexual advances.
Tom Sanders comes into work and finds a big surprise waiting for him: his ex-lover, sexy and fierce Meredith Johnson, is about to seize the vice-president position he expects and deserves. Once she's settled into her posh office, Meredith all-too-innocently invites Tom up after work for an "office chat," only to ply him with fine wine and make some strong advances towards him. When Tom resists, Meredith threatens him, and within days, Tom has decided to file a sexual harassment suit against her. Since nobody believes that a man could be victimized like this, Tom must use all his ingenuity to prove his innocence and her manipulativeness.
