Which side of the deal will you be on?
In this fast-paced and twisty thriller, newly unemployed Vernon refuses to toil away in an average job in a crumbling economy and instead masterminds a diabolical, all-or-nothing plan… Trading. In Trading, Vernon brings together two anonymous and equally desperate individuals to liquidate their assets, bring the cash to a remote location – and fight to the death. The winner walks away with everything. When Trading becomes an alarmingly popular underground phenomenon, Vernon becomes a participant in the very game that he created.
“AN INGENIOUS AND MACABRE DEBUT.”
“…SO WELL SUITED TO THE WINNERS-VS.-LOSERS REALITIES OF OUR ECONOMIC MOMENT.”
–THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“DARK AND MORBIDLY FUNNY.”ANDREW MACK
“A DARING AND UNIQUE FILM. KILLIAN SCOTT DELIVERS AS A CAPTIVATING LEADING MAN.”
“TRADERS COULD BE THE “FIGHT CLUB” FOR 2016…FROM START TO FINISH, THIS FILM IS DARK, DISTURBING AND VERY FUN.”
“A FANTASTIC LOOK AT THE THINGS WE DO FOR MONEY.”
