Lost in a labyrinth of cubicles, everyman Brad Braidley, employee #285 at the nameless American everycompany, receives a message from a chorus of his colleagues that the company is down-sizing. 

Fearing the ‘tide of pink slips’ foretold by the oracle of CNN, Brad Braidley begins his journey to confront the all powerful Zeush and revoke his faith in the mighty culture of capital.
