INTRODUCTION
The movie was about an employee whom name is Dan Fernand, works a company named “Sports America”. He was a boss of his work and then his company had been bought another company and this man forced to work under order of very young man who’s his new boss. New boss (Carter Durrier) will be so close with Dan and story goes over ethics of employee-friend relation. Dan is extra mile boss who is really good at his job; he is finding sponsors to sell advertisements to his company Sports America. Suddenly his company had been bought from another company and he almost losing job, his job depends his new boss Carter who is only 26 years old young man. Dan is 52 and he was thinking to leave his job but he will realize that his wife pregnant and his daughter accepted from New York University. Now, he has no opportunity to think his situation.
