The ambitious hedge fund manager Bobby "Ax" Axelrod (Damian Lewis) enjoys a high reputation in public as a generous businessman. As a survivor of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, he has made it among other things the task to take over the college fees of the children of his deceased colleagues, who were not as lucky as he was in the disaster. However, there is much to suggest that Axelrod has come to his fortune not only legally, but also through insider trading and bribery. Therefore, the merciless and successful prosecutor Charles "Chuck" Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) one day begins to investigate Axelrod. But in terms of intelligence, the two ambitious men do not do anything, so that their conflict soon escalate and threatens to affect both their private and their professional life in danger.
