There are a million temps in the naked city, but Josh Kornbluth (Josh Kornbluth) is the best. He always shows up for work on time, has a Talmudic mastery of Microsoft Word, and only steals office supplies when he absolutely has to. Sent on a new assignment to a huge downtown law firm, at the end of his very first day Josh is asked the question he's always feared the most: Will he go "perm?" It's an offer he can't refuse (they'll cover his therapy!), so for the first time in his life, Josh goes perm. But when his new boss, the mysterious Bob Shelby (Warren Keith), gives him 17 important letters to mail, Josh just can't seem to do it. Clearly, this lifelong temp is having a tough time going perm. And clearly, at some point the White-Out is going to hit the fan.
