Plot Summary
College roommates Tim Gerrity (James Spader) and Peter Burton (John Cusack) seem as if they'll be friends forever despite their class differences. Tim comes from a privileged family, while Peter's roots are solidly blue-collar. But a rift develops between them when Peter pursues a political career with such wild ambition that he will go to any lengths -- including blackmail -- to get ahead. As the betrayals mount, Tim resolves to stop Peter's rush to power before it's too late.
