synopsis

It took Enron 16 years to go from ten billion to 65 billion in assets but it only took them 24 days to go bankrupt. This is the timely inside story of one of history’s greatest business scandals, in which top executives of America’s seventh largest company walked away with over one billion dollars while investors and employees lost everything. Featuring insider accounts and incendiary corporate audio and videotapes, it reveals the unimaginable personal excesses of the Enron hierarchy and the moral vacuum that posed as company philosophy – lifting the lid on one of the most infamous corporate frauds of our time.
