THE ADMAN captures both the superficial glamour and the behind-the-
scenes manipulation of the advertising world. At fifty-two, Col
Anderson yearns for the respect he feels is his due and constantly
points to his awards, which adorn the advertising agency where he
works and which put it on its feet. But advertising looks towards the
future not the past and Col is struggling to prove his ideas are still
vibrant amidst a younger generation of 'creatives'. Interspersed with
colourful, satiric commercials, THE ADMAN takes a lively look at the
politics and ethics of the advertising world and their consequences.
