Synopsis
Traces the paths of two freewheeling entrepreneurs and their quest for the new American dream: developing a successful Internet start-up company. GovWorks.com is a new-media solution for connecting citizens with government via the Internet. By focusing on the trials and tribulations of Tom Herman and Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, GovWork's charismatic founders and leaders, we see each important milestone on the road to riches, from the inception of the idea to the courting of venture capitalists. The relentless drive in this group is palpable from their sports-rally chants to their obsessive work ethic. We follow them from East Coast to West, through sleepless nights and disappointing setbacks. The wild ride will all pay off if it delivers them to the ultimate final round, an IPO. But the bond of high-school friendship is put to the test when big money comes into the equation. The choices and sacrifices involved are heightened by their now-infamous historical context, the peak Web euphoria of 1999.
