August 2007. Richard compulsively analyzes financial data. While his flat is gradually becoming infested with mosquitoes, his models seem to predict the end of the system. Kafka’s Metamorphosis transposed to Wall Street. Ambitious, cruel and brilliant.

New York, August 2007. The country is on the verge of a serious financial crisis, but nobody seems to realize it except for Richard Boca, a financial analyst, a “quant” who wields algorithms like a god. On his way to a fancy party his life is turned upside down following two encounters with a woman and a mosquito. A chilling film about fear, metamorphosis and high-frequency trading, based on Michael Lewis’ Flash Boys.
