A family man working for a sinking supermarket chain enters into an affair with his sexy and spirited new boss, whose efforts to turn him into a high-powered executive mean less time spent with his wife and son in this comedy from writer/director Michael Walker (Chasing Sleep). Pete (Eric Mabius) used to work in the music industry. But after that career fell through, he somehow wound up in the pricing department of a grocery-store chain that's about to go under. Much to Pete's surprise, things start to look up when he gets a new boss named Susan (Parker Posey) whose infectious enthusiasm and unorthodox approach give the struggling business a much-needed boost. Meanwhile, Susan sees great potential in Pete, and begins focusing her energy on transforming him into a key player for the company. The more time Susan and Pete spend together, however, the further the once-happy husband and father drifts away from his wife and son.
