Synopsis
An opportunist reporter has been exiled to a small New Mexico daily after being kicked off a top eastern paper for dishonesty, drinking and general insubordination. One day he accidentally stumbles on a story that he believes can get him back in the big leagues so long as he plays the yarn long enough and can keep it to himself.
