In this epic tale of humanity versus corporate greed, the director of the Academy Award-nominated WAR WITCH, Kim Nguyen, exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world.

New York cousins Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of high-frequency stock trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a fibre-optic cable in a straight line between Kansas and New Jersey, giving them an extra edge and making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair, and together they push each other and everyone around them to breaking point on their quixotic adventure.
