In the aftermath of the 2008 housing crisis, Elle Serrano discovers she is living two lives simultaneously. In one, she is a CPA working for a global banking conglomerate. In the other, she is a wife and mother discovering her power as a grassroots activist targeting the same corporate bank. As she seeks to unravel the cause of her dual existence, Elle must come to terms with the sometimes destructive impact her choices have had on those closest to her. In doing so, she learns that sometimes the most intimate decisions have the potential to change the world.
