In-ter-view: a formal consultation usually to evaluate qualifications, as of a prospective employee; a meeting at which information exchanges between two parties. A job interview is stressful for most people, but for Laura Simmons, a determined and trusting, yet insecure, job candidate, the interview with Fred Wheeler and Associates is more than what she expects. Her husband, Kyle, is a successful opportunistic executive, whose business successes is largely due to his competitive, self-confident, and risk taking behavior. However, he misplaces these traits when he provides counsel to his wife's job search. In an attempt to please Kyle, Laura overextends and becomes overly self-critical and an easy touch, thus jeopardizing her emotional and physical well being. The interview is unexpectedly interrupted when an angry former employee, Gil Jackson, takes hostage Laura and seven employees of Fred Wheeler and Associates, threatening to explode a dynamite bomb, killing everyone. This thriller exposes the real character of each person, demonstrating how each of them reacts differently to the same stress-demands. The turning point occurs when they realize they must work together to survive, and put aside their differences.
