Pathological narcissist Harvey Davison, Managing Director of Melbourne-based ASX-listed facilities management company Action Services; and his ruthless agenda-driven chairman of the board, Kim Rigby-Mortimer, are on an expansionary drive and have competitor Responsive Maintenance Services - owned and operated by hardworking couple Roger and Kristine Small - in their sights as a prime acquisition target. When initial negotiations come to nothing, a devious plan is hatched to pressure the Smalls into returning to the negotiating table. A lowly paid maintenance worker is coerced into attempting to create a wave of adverse publicity that will cripple the Smalls' business and force its sale. It is left to Murray Johnston, Chief Operating Officer and loyal Action Services employee, to come to the rescue and clean up the mess, exposing the underbelly of unconscionable boardroom behaviour and the push for growth at all costs at the expense of a tired, overburdened and often bewildered workforce.
