Julian Caesar, the board chairman of a large company deals with jealousy and treachery among his underlings as he fights to maintain control and power in this reworking of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar." The duplicitous directors are led by the ruthless R. Cassius who after much badgering convinces the one honest director left, Brutus Smith, to join up and vote Caesar down. Upon losing his position, poor Caesar dies of a heart-attack, leaving Mark Anthony to take over and immediately toss out all the bad apples on the board. The despondent Brutus then takes his own life.
