Philip Dunbar is a slacker. A newly minted college graduate, Philip is unsure of what to do with his life. With pressure from his father and U.S. Senator, Philip enters a chaotic job market, spending months looking for work until he finally lands a job at a local branch for a major bank. Dealing with psychotic customers and impossible sales goals, Philip is eventually fired due to his poor sales performance. But after accidentally uncovering a Ponzi scheme, Philp is rehired and is thrust into the world of corporate finance, getting promoted to work in New York City.
It is there Philip meets the bank’s egocentric and charismatic CEO Walter Kalman, who is stopping at nothing to take his bank into a new era of high finance, even if it means setting the world of Wall Street on fire. Getting accustomed to the glitz and glamour of working on Wall Street, Philip feels like he has finally done something with his life. But after the financial crisis unfolds, he realizes not everything is what it seems, and is caught in the middle of Walter Kalman’s ambitions and the complexity of dating two women, a naïve coffee shop owner and a power hungry investment banker who will do what it takes to move up the corporate ladder.
Being investigated by the FBI and extorted by Walter Kalman, Philip has no choice but to take matters into his own hands and expose Kalman’s corruption under the most unusual of circumstances.
