WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop (Gunn) is passed up for a promotion at her firm, so in response she seeks to take a start-up company public with the hopes it can get her back into her superiors’ good books. However, when it becomes apparent that there may be a crack within the company’s walls, Naomi soon finds herself caught in a web of deceit and corruption, where there aren’t many people she can trust and she must fight to survive in the business she’s been a part of for most of her life…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Women take the lead roles in the latest film in a genre that’s mostly male-dominated, and with someone like Anna Gunn giving it her all in the lead role it can’t come soon enough.
