Synopsis: In this timely thriller, hard-working single father Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) and his mother (Academy Award® nominee Laura Dern) are cruelly evicted from their home. Desperate to get his house back, Nash goes to work for the wealthy and ruthless businessman Rick Carver (Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon) – the very man who repossessed Nash's home. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost – on Carver's orders, Nash must evict families from their homes; in return, Nash is promised a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. As Nash falls deeper into Carver's web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.
The 99% is a global phenomenon. The common man around the world can no longer do hard honest work and expect to thrive against systematic greed and corruption. When faced by the firing squad, does a man join hands with his executioner? Is there any choice to make other than a deal with the devil?
