Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Diana B. Henriques. In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for perpetrating perhaps the largest financial fraud in U.S. history that led to the financial ruin for countless people and institutions, as well as his and his family's ruination. A true-life financial thriller, the film examines Madoff's Ponzi scheme - his deception, lies and cover-up, all as the financier's wife and sons are catapulted into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight. The author of the book, Diana B. Henriques, plays herself as the first journalist to interview Madoff in prison.
