Nick Leeson always wanted to be more than a bank teller, and his employer, Barings Bank, is impressed when he solves a problem they have in Jacarta. When the bank needs someone in Singapore to will set up a trading operation, Lisa, whom he met in Jacarta, accompanies him. Because the bank is cheap, Nick must operate the back office and the floor on his own and only sometimes has local unskilled workers. At first, he makes profits by illegal trading practices, but he starts losing, makes riskier decisions and eventually single handedly is responsible for his company’s downfall.
