Deveraux (G. Dépardieu), the director of the World Bank, is a man of immense power and a sexual predator whose hands handle billions of dollars daily. His lady-companions at parties change in a similar tempo. But nobody's untouchable. Abel Ferrara's controversial drama is loosely inspired by the case of the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, made headlines worldwide in 2011.
