Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a business man who spends 360 days a year on the road doing the dirty work of firing employees for corporate America. Trouble comes along as a newcomer tries to revolutionize the industry by doing the firing online rather than in person. Bingham begins to see his nomadic life in a different light as he begins to realize luxurious hotels and airline perks aren’t all what they’re cracked up to be.
