During America's 2008 housing crisis, ruthless real estate broker Rick Carver (Michael Shannon) is making massive profits by repossessing homes. When unemployed tradesman Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) is evicted along with his mother (Laura Dern) and his young son, he is a desperate man who would do anything for work. By a twist of fate, he's offered a job by Carver, the very man who evicted him.
