Someone is out to get Michael Murray (Robert Lindsay). He is the top man in town, champion of the oppressed, chaser of women, and the new leader of the city. Michael Murray is popular, powerful and ambitious - the local politician who knows what it's like to be hated, and who needs to be loved. His hunger for power leads him to play for higher stakes.
He calls a 24-hour protest strike hoping to generate publicity. No one goes to work that day except for one man - Jim Nelson (Michael Palin), the much-loved headmaster of a school for disturbed children. He steals the limelight from Michael Murray and becomes the hero of the day.
Michael Murray seeks revenge against Jim Nelson. Jim starts to crack under the strain. Murray, too, is plagued by doubts and anxieties, haunted by the ghosts of his own childhood. Just when the pressure of public life and power games starts to get on top of him, a beautiful woman arrives on the scene ...
