In March, 2008, the eighty-five year old brokerage firm of Bear Stearns was in deep trouble, bloated with failing mortgage-backed securities. On the verge of bankruptcy, the management of Bear Stearns spent a hectic weekend in negotiations with the major banks and the federal government in an effort to save the company. For Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, the leaders of the international banks, and investors like Warren Buffet, the stakes were even higher - saving the global economy. In this fast-paced screenplay, the big players in this Wall Street drama reveal both the strengths and weakness of human beings under incredible pressure - and the failures and dangers of the global economy.
