In the corporate thriller $upercapitalist, director Simon Yin's feature film debut, Conner Lee (script writer Derek Ting, Largo Winch), a maverick New York Hedge fund trader with uncanny analytic abilities, predicts an unprecedented move by the Federal Reserve which sparks investor interest in China. Mark Patterson (Linus Roache, Batman Begins, "Law and Order"), Conner's boss, urges Conner to move to Hong Kong and orchestrate a hostile takeover of a large family-run corporation in Hong Kong. Connor quickly buys into the playboy lifestyle there, but then meets smart, sophisticated Natalie (Kathy Uyen, "How I Met Your Mother"), who challenges him to consider that there are other things to life than money—such as self-fulfillment, family values, and love. Caught in a ruthless culture of profits at all costs, he desperately negotiates and maneuvers inside China's closed, complex society, with his life and Hong Kong's future staked on a corrupt billion dollar deal.
