Wallace Garrison is a self-centered and demanding employer. The head of a small film office, he thinks nothing of asking his editor to do a two-day job in 24 hours, even though he knows the man's 8-year old is coming from out of town for a visit. He forces his accountant to do his personal income tax on short notice and warns him that any late penalties will come out of his salary. He also makes advances against his attractive special effects expert. The last straw however is when the three learn that he has filed a patent on a new 3D special effects process that they developed. Fed up, they decide to put their new invention to good use.
