Don't get mad. Get promoted.
Peter Derns (Timothy Hutton), a recently divorced junior executive at a successful cookie company, decides to hire a temp when things at the office get too hairy. Enter Kris (Lara Flynn Boyle), the new secretary who seems to do no wrong. Peter is extremely grateful when Kris rescues him from some potential office disasters, but he begins to feel that he's in danger when it appears that her fierce loyalty to him is leading her to do away with some of his superiors in strangely bloody fashion. This dark satire veers recklessly between nasty horror and knowing office comedy, doling out laughs and shocks in equal measure.
