||Three distinct groups of traders identify the potential 2007 world economic crisis caused by the American mortgage selling process and bet on it occurring.
||There is a lot of profane but entertaining dialogue and some nudity when one group visit a strip club on a fact finding mission (really).
||There are speeches to camera, some unrelated to the story, in an attempt to help the viewer understand the process. They are generally not very helpful but it hardly matters. It helps if you have seen Margin Call.
