News anchor Jason Cromwell (Albert Finney) is always on the hunt for controversy. As usual, he shows no mercy when he begins investigating a savings and loan scandal involving a bank president. But, when the innocent man kills himself, Cromwell is shaken to his core. Now plunged into the center of his own story, Cromwell begins to reevaluate his journalistic responsibilities in a broadcast environment more concerned with Nielsen ratings than with ethics.
