Joel Reynolds je vodja majhne tovarnice, kjer delavci pripravljajo stavko. Toda film dejansko ne govori o delavcih in stavki, temveč o osebnih težavah glavnega junaka, ki je poročen, a se zagleda v novo sodelavko Cindy. Ker hoče ostati zvest ženi Suzie, Joel posluša nasvet prijatelja Deana, naj ženi najde ljubimca in se potem brez slabe vesti zaplete s Cindy. A stvari seveda kmalu niso več tako enostavne. Joel mora sestaviti razpadajočo tovarno in svoj zakon, medtem ko ugotavlja, kaj v življenju se mu zdi zares pomembno.
