Synopsis
Harry Barnes is a fledgling reporter in 1940s Canada whose enthusiasm for a journalistic career is wavering due to the cynicism of his older colleagues. While working in vain to get a "big scoop' Harry does succeed in having an affair with his publisher's wife and impresses a female co-worker by becoming a leader of the newspaper union movement.
