1978, New York. John Anderson is barely out of college and has landed himself a job on Wall Street.

But cracks in the banks’ excessive lending strategy soon start to show. Despite the warning signs – and their consciences – John and his colleagues continue to pursue their targets, threatening to leave them all financially, and morally, bankrupt.
