Plot Summary
In the economically bleak United States of the 1930s, machinist Charles Lang (William H. Macy) believes that his new creation -- an engine powered by water -- will change his industry for the better and provide him with enough money to properly care for his sightless sister. Unfortunately, as Charles tries to sell his idea, he finds that two crooked lawyers, Lawrence Oberman (Joe Mantegna) and Mason Gross (John Mahoney), employed by Big Oil are out to steal his idea and suppress his voice.
