In 2008, Wall Street brought the economy of the United States to the brink of collapse with a shell game based on bankrupt mortgages. Nine years later, the stock market was sky high again, and the game went global.

There are no good guys in this story, but there are a few people—a ragtag band of short sellers—who are sick of being lied to. This documentary follows their story through Wall Street, China and your retirement savings to uncover the biggest heist you've never heard of.
