As prosecutor Hannah Maynard (Kerry Fox) builds a war crimes case against former Yugoslavian army commander Goran Duric (Drazen Kühn), the key witness's suicide threatens to let the atrocities go unpunished -- unless she unearths new evidence.

In a desperate bid to save her low-performing sales team from the gallows, harried manager Catherine (Madison Walls) agrees to take advice from Neal (Steven Bauer), a slick, seasoned sales consultant with a knack for sealing deals -- no matter what the subject matter is.

Along with current favorite Jeff Dunham, the skills of past masters such as Edgar Bergen are explored. Jay Johnson, the quirky son from "Soap," is also featured, as is one of the few female "vents," Lynn Trefzger. As the film attests, "venting," with its ability to be both satirical and tender, is thriving.
