About

Holliday once again takes the role of a not-so-dumb blonde in this tale of capitalism gone wrong, a sense of justice and true love. She's the enthusiastic but uninformed small shareholder in a company where most of the board is secretly corrupt. She attends a shareholders' meeting and meets Douglas, the only honest member of the board. They hit it off and he encourages her to keep up the good work and from then on it's a comedy about her outwitting the bad guys. Yeah - like global capitalism gets overthrown that easily.
