In 1844, three brothers from Bavaria arrive in America with dreams of a new life. A century and a half later, the Lehman Brothers firm spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, triggering the largest financial crisis in history. Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road) directs this saga of a company and family that changed the world.
