'Jim Doyle (David Wenham) is hired by a major bank to perfect his mathematical discovery. He believes he can predict the stock market using chaos theory. His new boss, Simon O'Reilly (Anthony LaPaglia), gives him the biggest computer in the southern hemisphere, and then applies constant pressure. Meanwhile, a nine-year-old boy drowns himself when the bank forecloses on his family's mortgage. Grief-stricken parents Wayne (Steve Rodgers) and Diane Davis (Mandy McElhinney) bring a court action, alleging the bank failed to disclose the risks of their loan. O'Reilly tells his fixers to make the legal problem go away. Doyle's new girlfriend Michelle (Sibylla Budd) wonders if Jim has sold his soul to the devil. He wonders if she is a spy for his boss.
As Doyle perfects his computer model, he warns O'Reilly about the implications: if they can foresee a market crash, they could also act to stop it, benefiting millions. O'Reilly sees only a huge profit potential, a score to make his name. To cement Doyle's loyalty, he asks him to lie before the court, in the Davis case. The bank wins, but Doyle loses Michelle and the respect of his close colleague, Vincent (Greg Stone). Wayne Davis decides to kill the banker who killed his son, just as Doyle unleashes his computer program on the financial markets. O'Reilly discovers too late that Doyle has his own plans for the bank.' (Source: Australian Screen website)
