James Garner as "F. Ross Johnson"

Based on a true story, this humor-tinged docudrama follows F. Ross Johnson (James Garner), the CEO and president of the massive food and tobacco corporation RJR Nabisco, as he attempts to buy the company. Before long, other major players become involved, most notably ruthless executive Henry Kravis (Jonathan Pryce), which leads to clashes with Johnson. As the bids roll in, and Kravis makes his savvy moves, can Johnson win out in this battle of aggressive business tactics?
