In this epic tale of humanity versus corporate greed, cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a fibre-optic cable in a straight line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions.

However nothing is as straightforward as it seems. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to breaking point to achieve their goal. Breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a sociopathic trader who will stop at nothing to see them fail.

No matter what the cost, Vincent and Anton are determined to cut through America to find their fortune, but ultimately find family and redemption at the end of the line.

“As the geological, financial and personal barriers the cousins face grow increasingly absurd, the movie works up a satisfying sweat.” NEW YORK TIMES.

“This hummingbird soars. It has that based-on-a-true-story feel, with all the urgency and verisimilitude of a real-life tale. A sad and visceral indictment of our society under the guise of a thriller, Kim Nguyen’s rousing cinematic elegy will sneak up on you, like its titular moth.” FILM THREAT.

“Despite esoteric subject matter, writer-director Kim Nguyen (War Witch) has crafted a smartly entertaining and unexpectedly human film with this financial thriller “ LA TIMES.
