Tense drama which follows the personal struggles of high-ranking employees of an investment bank during a 24-hour period at the beginning of the 2008 financial crisis.
Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Demi Moore and Jeremy Irons, the film opens with a trader, Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci), passing on a project he describes as high-risk to Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto).
When Peter discovers just how high-risk the project is - its failure would lead to losses greater than the company's assets - he becomes alarmed and raises the issue with his boss, Sam Rogers (Spacey).
As the issue gets passed further and further up the company ladder - ultimately to CEO John Tuld (Irons) - surprising information emerges about how much senior figures at the bank already knew about the risk and the things they might be prepared to do to escape from the fix...
