At 33, Doug Stauber is ready for a promotion. He&#39s married, wants to buy a house, and is assistant manager at a Chicago supermarket that&#39s building a new store in his neighborhood. His boss tells him he&#39s a shoo-in to manage the new store, then, a rival appears - Richard Wehlner, transferred from Canada. Richard has a deeper resume than Doug, is really nice, has a wife and daughter, and wants the promotion to manager too. How should Doug behave toward Richard - as a friend, a colleague, a competitor, or an enemy? Richard, it seems, has demons and a past, but with the help of motivational tapes, he&#39s resolved to succeed. Corporate and personal tests await the two men.
