When was the last time you paid attention to the world around you and let it inspire a new perspective? For David, an ad agency exec who finds himself competing with the man who once stole his idea and then fired him, a new perspective feels both necessary and elusive. His first day in Chicago to bid on the Albright Glass account has been the stuff of embarrassing legends and if he wants any hope at redeeming himself, he needs a stellar new idea by morning.
