A tense moral thriller about fast money and predatory behaviour. Leo (Craig Parkinson, FOUR LIONS, CONTROL), a swaggering trader in the City of London, is an unreconstructed alpha male. Recently promoted, he wants to pursue riskier trades and bullies his underlings into going along with him. But how far can he push Teddy (Luke Newberry, BAFTA-nominated for IN THE FLESH [BBC THREE]) and Rosie (Ria Zmitrowicz, THREE GIRLS [BBC ONE]) before they reach their moral limits? A gripping drama about ruthless profit, unbridled masculinity and urgent world events.
