Bruce Bieszki plays Mel, a well paid executive of a company which has hit the skids and started to pare the payroll. Mel, too, gets the ax. His wife [Maria Fletcher] takes a job to tide them over, then she too is sacked. As if this weren't enough, Mel is fighting a losing battle with the very environs of life. Mel does the only thing left for him to do; he has a nervous breakdown. It is on recovery that we come to esteem him all the more. For Mel and his wife and people like them have the resilience, the grit to survive.
