Brantley Foster (Michael J. Fox) is a recent graduate of a Midwestern college who moves to New York City to follow his dream of business success. His semi-distant uncle Howard (Richard Jordan) is the CEO of his new wife's big Wall Street firm and reluctantly takes Brantley into the company, but banishes him to menial mail clerk work. Wanting to climb his way out of the mail room and into the board room, Brantley realizes that his uncle and the other executives of the company are making questionable decisions that could financially harm the company. Brantley decides that he can do better and assumes the identity of Carlton Whitfield, a new executive. Success for Brantley as Carlton follows including trysts with an attractive older lady Vera (Margaret Whitton) who unknown to Brantley turns out to be the new wife of his uncle, and with his true heart's desire Christy Wills (Helen Slater), a financial wizard within the company. When Carlton's true identity is threatened to be exposed, and a takeover threatens the company, Brantley decides to come clean to all only to wind up getting promoted out of the mail room instead of fired.
