New York cousins Vincent and Anton are involved in the high-stakes, risky and super-speedy business of High Frequency Trading. But their ambitions don’t stop there - the two also have a plan to build a fibre-optic cable in a straight line between New Jersey and Kansas. It’s the kind of scheme which could net them millions - but others would delight in their failure in writer/director Kim Nguyen’s biting comedy drama.

With its wry nods to Herzog, Nguyen's fable about fools is bolstered by a career-best performance by Skarsgård.
