A group of investment bankers and stock traders rock Wall Street when they risk everything to break away from an established firm and start their own company. Their leader is the brilliant but eccentric grandson of the founder of their former company, who must betray his family heritage in order to stake a claim to his own life. His partners, each with a separate agenda, risk losing everything to join him in the new venture.
Disillusioned by his autocratic grandfather, Robert "The Kaiser" Roberts, renegade broker Robert "Ditto" Roberts III risks everything when he defects from the old-guard firm. "Ditto" enlists a plan to his hard-charging colleagues, Corey Granville, Marty Decker, Carson Boyd, Alison Jeffers and Marissa Rufo, to begin a rival start-up firm that will answer the call of the new economy. With no financing, no clients and the rivalry of every player in town, the team's dreams rest on Hunter Lasky, the hard-hitting negotiations shark who has the potential to give the renegade team of Wall Street turks the edge and legitimacy they need to succeed in the competitive world of high finance.
