In RASHEEDA SPEAKING - Jaclyn Spaulding, a black woman has been out sick for five days and returns to her job in a Chicago surgeon's front office to discover that her co-worker Ileen a white woman has been promoted to Office Manager. It's a cramped, two-person reception area, and from the look of things, Ileen with her messy desk and unorganized drawers can barely manage her half of it. Neat-freak, plant-loving, toxin-phobic Jaclyn quickly becomes aware Ileen will be managing her.
It turns out that their boss, smooth operator Dr. Williams is more than a little put off by Jaclyn's supposed attitude and rudeness. Dr, Williams enlists Ileen, a reluctant spy, to log Jaclyn's tardiness, rudeness with clients, and bizarre behavior, in order to help him build a case for her dismissal. Despite Ileen's initial reluctance to betray Jaclyn, she knows how to take orders, especially from a complementing boss who she admires and is dedicated to. A tense power struggle ensues that twists and turns wildly out of control and reveals office racial struggles that have existed in the work place of this country for many years.
