Thomas, under increased pressure from the threat of redundancy and feeling undermined by his colleagues, is determined to prove himself.
However, the consequences of one night, in which he has a drink with his boss Chris Carter, tries to impress his old school friend and potential new client Mark Baxter and have a dinner with his wife and her father, only causes his life to spiral further.
After badly bungling a pitch meeting, middle manager Thomas Benso is determined to win back the client but feels undermined by his team. Is someone really out to get him? And can Bartlett create the same paranoid intensity from workplace bullying as he did with a betrayal in the home?
