A respected financial company is downsizing and one of the victims is the risk management division head, who was working on a major analysis just when he was let go. His protégé completes the study late into the night and then frantically calls his colleagues in about the company's financial disaster he has discovered. What follows is a long night of panicked double checking and double dealing as the senior management prepare to do whatever it takes to mitigate the debacle to come even as the handful of conscientious comrades find themselves dragged along into the unethical abyss.Written by

The Moundsville Bridge mentioned by Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci) actually exists. It was completed in 1986, which would have been twenty-two years before the debt crash of 2008, which is the subject of this movie. See more »
Deleted scene #68 is set 2 minutes before the markets open, but the minute hands on all the clocks on the wall in the background show 20 minutes past the hour. See more »
I was a stockbroker in '08/09 and will never forget the panicked feeling on the trading desk on a daily basis. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. Greed still drives the market, inexorably towards the next GFC. Lessons were given out but none learnt.
And Demi Moore....wow.
