Josh Kovacs likes his job, working as the head manager of a group of innocent and hard-working employees at The Tower, a well-known hotel. But everything changes when the owner, Arthur Shaw (played by Alan Alda) is jailed for fraud. Worse, the hotel employees learn that their pensions were swindled too.
