New York City, not-too-distant-future.
Eric Packer, is a successful 28 year-old financier and notices a dark shadow extend over the Wall Street galaxy, of which he is the uncontested king. As he is chauffeured across Manhattan to get a haircut at his father's old barber, he anxiously monitors the yuan's exchange rate, which is unexpectedly climbing and destroying Eric's bet against it. Eric Packer’s empire is vaporising rapidly.
Meanwhile, an eruption of wild activity erupts on the city's streets. Terrified as the threats of the real world infringe upon Packer’s cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies over the next 24 hours and he begins to uncover clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination.
Director David Cronenberg revisits subjects that fascinate him and COSMOPOLIS is a culmination of his masterpieces that addresses the alarming global financial crisis of today's world.
