The story follows a group of investment bankers in London in the wake of the tech bubble of 2000. The beautiful Emily Allenby is chosen to bring to market Metrotel that would rose overnight from €260 million to €3.5bn. Julien Lenoir, the ever-optimistic banker stopped at nothing to get his many deals done but when the market tumbles, Julien finds himself backed against a wall holding a ticking bomb: one month to find €600 million or go broke. And then there is Richard Bennington, a rich disillusioned aristocrat that is in the market just for the adrenaline of pulling out before getting burnt. But in the crisis to come, the feast will soon turn into a frantic race for self-preservation.
