The Image

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.

Under the Volcano

Geoffrey Firmin (Albert Finney) is a heavy-drinking British diplomat living in a Mexican town. As the local Day of the Dead celebration gets underway, Geoffrey drowns himself in the bottle, having cut himself off from his family, friends and job. When Geoffrey goes missing, his wife Yvonne (Jacqueline Bisset) convinces his half-brother Hugh (Anthony Andrews) to conduct a last-ditch search for the drunk, hoping that Hugh might be able to rescue her self-destructing husband.
