Research assistant Herman Brooks works in the fact-checking department of a major magazine publisher, Waterton Publishing in Manhattan. Herman, from all outward appearances, embodies the ultimate young man on the fast track—ambitious, clever and sensible—but viewers are shown that, as in everyone, a struggle of contrasting personality traits are constantly working, and most often arguing, inside his head. His decisions and actions are dramatized with a “Greek chorus”–style interpretation of his thought processes.
