Baker & Taylor
As the global economy heads toward a major recession, two strong businessmen who run a colossal international management consulting and accounting firm find themselves battling one another to save it, each proposing a different way of preventing its collapse. One is the founder and a ruthless CEO; the other is the senior-most executive and a principled but flawed idealist. They were once as close as father and son, the older man mentor to the younger, but their relationship collapses along with the economy. As their firm loses one blue-chip corporate client after another, the CEO instigates a series of financial crimes, using fraudulent accounting to appear to help clients make their estimated profits and insider trading to reap millions for himself. With the end in sight, he absconds with millions more from a partners' bonus pool, forcing the younger man to hire a private eye to hunt him down.
