Will (Matthew Newton) is a young, handsome, Australian stockbroker desperate to demonstrate his market wizardry, and establish himself as an unstoppable member of his profession.  He makes a daring bet with his highly respected and wealthy colleague, Angus (Aden Young) to determine who can make the most of $500,000 within a three-month period.


Both men exhibit their extreme amorality throughout the competition.  Will's actions jeopardize his relationship with Tory (Sibylla Budd), a successful Sydney attorney, and nearly bankrupt his father.  How far are these two men willing to go for the sake of the almighty dollar?
