When the clothing store branch she manages is about to be closed down, the courageous sales manager Sara storms to the corporate executives to state why her store should remain open.

As her shock begins to subside, Sara slowly starts to realize what amazing possibilities are now just within her grasp – she can not only save her employees from getting fired; she can also inject some new energy into this old and conservative firm.
With a stubborn fierceness and her talent for improvisation, Sara dives into her new mission to rescue the company from its own lack of imagination.
