Synopsis


"Do we work in public relations?


Because I'm starting to feel like I accidentally work in public relations"


New York City - open for business 24/7.


In the same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a supermarket chain, Rick threw himself a lavish engagement party - which even featured an elephant - setting off a publicity nightmare.


However all's not lost when you're the titan of high finance - there's still an abundance of cash in reserve and Seth, one of Rick's partners, spots an opportunity to salvage the company's reputation with an investment that's both sound and PR-friendly.


But Jenny, the third partner, and Seth's nemesis, has other ideas: she's not in business to make friends.


If there's money to be made, she'll do whatever it takes to generate the maximum return, irrespective of what the critics might say …
