Chuck Rhoades, a powerful U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is tipped to a case of insider trading with links to billionaire hedge fund king Bobby "Axe" Axelrod. While it could be a career-defining case for Chuck, he must tread carefully, because his wife, Wendy, is the in-house performance coach at Axe Capital and Axe's key confidante. But a costly purchase by Axe gives Chuck the opening he needs, setting off a cat and mouse game where the stakes are high and intensely personal.

Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) says to Bobby Axlerod, "There's a saying in baseball: towns fire managers. Owners just give them the bad news." Paul Giamatti's father, Angelo Bartlett "Bart" Giamatti, was commissioner of Major League Baseball from April 1989 until his death in September 1989. Although his tenure as commissioner was brief, he was commissioner during the most famous dismissal of a manager in baseball history: the decision to render Pete Rose as "permanently ineligible" from baseball because he was found to have bet on Major League games.
