Itching to strike out on their own, Anton and Vincent secretly prepare construction of a perfectly straight fibre-optic cable between Kansas and New Jersey.
The goal? To earn billions by making themselves one millisecond faster than the other traders, including their sociopathic former boss, Eva, who will stop at nothing to see them fail.
Nothing is straighforward for this flawed pair. They push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point on their chaotic adventure. No matter the cost, Vincent and Anton are determined to cut through America!
