- Synopsis / Plot
- When the president of a major furniture-manufacturing company suddenly dies, the members of the Board scramble to replace him quickly and quietly. Each man is driven by his own motives, be it avarice or altruism. An all-star cast is entangled in many subplots, which complement the big business focus. A very involving drama adapted from Cameron Hawley's best-selling novel.
