Three men wake up one morning and decide to take what they have not earned. Dan, a shifty entrepreneur, starts a software company to cash in on the high-tech boom. Al, a down-and-out music producer, bullies his handsome son into forming a boy-band. Alder, an obscure academic, steals a brilliant idea from a grad student. As they exploit the talents of the naïve youths around them, their fame and wealth increase – but they become more and more terrified of exposure and destruction.
