A "man's man"-type advertising executive gains the ability to divine the thoughts of women following an accident.

ABSTRACT
Chauvinistic advertising executive Nick Marshall earns the ability to read the minds of various women in his life following a curious accident, an episode flipping his existence upside down as he seeks to exploit his gift with a view to quite literally getting inside the mind of the opposite sex and using "their" ideas to get ahead in the world.
