A nice change of pace. A business drama -- no mystery, crime, or supernatural elements. Like The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit. A middle-aged businessman loses his job, and tries to cope with mounting bills, family obligations, and his loss of self-respect. Not to mention the difficulty of finding new work at age 48.
