Retiring CEO Barry "Little Bill" Williams inexplicably thrusts one of his firm's junior copywriters, Michael Davies, into the spotlight during a company retreat on Martha's Vineyard. Careers and reputations are secretly at stake at this casually decadent business summit, where all of that hidden information is ritualistically passed from the vengeful CEO into dangerous hands that tremble from amibition. What follows is a psychological battle of wits between two similar men at vastly different points in their lives set in a fantastical backdrop of corporate greed and white-collar evil that occurs in plain sight. A student production.
