Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) play scheming cousins Vincent and Anton Zalesky in Academy Award- nominated director Kim Nguyen's (War WitchThe Hummingbird Project.

In the hopes of striking it rich, the cousins try to build a thousand-mile-long, four-inch-wide tunnel from Kansas to New Jersey that will give them a one-millisecond edge on transactions at the New York Stock Exchange. They end up in the crosshairs of their ruthless former employer Eva Torres (Salma Hayek, Frida), a Wall Street lion willing to devour anyone in her path. Time is rapidly running out on the guys' outrageous plan. A tragicomedy about hustlers fighting the establishment and even the course of history itself.
