Which side of the deal will you be on?
In this fast-paced and twisty thriller, newly unemployed Vernon refuses to toil away in an average job in a crumbling economy and instead masterminds a diabolical, all-or-nothing plan… Trading. In Trading, Vernon brings together two anonymous and equally desperate individuals to liquidate their assets, bring the cash to a remote location – and fight to the death. The winner walks away with everything. When Trading becomes an alarmingly popular underground phenomenon, Vernon becomes a participant in the very game that he created.
“AN INGENIOUS AND MACABRE DEBUT.”
“…SO WELL SUITED TO THE WINNERS-VS.-LOSERS REALITIES OF OUR ECONOMIC MOMENT.”
–THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
