A lab assistant discovers that the prominent neurobiologist he works for has fudged data on a major scientific paper. As Peter contemplates his next move, he seeks the advice of his closest friend and fiercest rival, Max, whose recommendations are uncompromising: rat on Greta Mendillo before she rats on him. Punch or be punched; knock her out or get knocked out yourself.
