When Jordan Melamed doesn’t find the Hollywood success he hoped for, he moves back to Chicago to revisit the famous Mercantile Exchange trading floor, where his father, Leo, is revered as a legend. Set against the final days of the Exchange’s famous “open outcry” trading pits, the film examines Jordan’s often contentious relationship with his demanding father, and the choices he has made that shape his own life.
