When three public figures, a politician, a protestor and a reporter, each believe they have what they need to expose the secret life of one of the others, and thereby damage their reputation, things don’t go quite as expected. They do have their associates and followers to help them with their plans, but even that has its problems. The poet Robbie Burns wrote “The best schemes of o’ mice an ‘men, Gang aft agley”, and never was it truer than when these three try to impose their dominance. While each believes they are only doing what will be best for everyone, those opinions prove to open to dispute.
