Against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean, in the early hours of the morning, are two men who walk on the beach sharing their life stories. Roy, a middle manager from a manufacturing plant, is desperate for answers as he struggles to lead an initiative that threatens the jobs of the managers of the factory. Accompanying him is Ed, a retired medical doctor turned corporate leader, who has managed to save a chain of companies from bankruptcy. Using the human body as a leadership model, Ed narrates stories from his own past to elaborate on the different stages involved in the development of human maturity within organizations. Encapsulated in a moving story of ambition, success, family and loss, is a series of anecdotes that talk about the purpose and fulfillment at work and life as a whole.
The heart of the story is about how high one bounces back when he hits the bottom and this is a timely message when so much is rapidly changing around us
