Ross Johnson (James Garner), the CEO and president of the massive food and tobacco corporation RJR Nabisco, as he attempts to buy the company. Before long, other major players become involved, most notably ruthless executive Henry Kravis (Jonathan Pryce), which leads to clashes with Johnson.

    Basically a blow-by-blow of the sale of Nabisco, with sight gags thrown in to make it a "comedy."
