Wall Street... where fortunes are made and lost, reputations can be gone in a New York minute
and where VULTURES, hunt for prey. They deal in the high stakes trading of distressed
companies. Like the raptors they're named for, they swoop down, pick at the remains,
sometimes turning companies around at the expense of many jobs but mostly sell off the parts
which are usually more valuable than the sum.
Into this atmosphere of survival of the fittest steps Seth Farragut, a young hedge fund
manager who is more than a type A "vulture" investor. Although he has made many decisions
that all too easily cost others their jobs, he has begun to re-think his life.
Seth,who lives in Greenwich Connecticut, has long questioned what he is doing, after seeing
first-hand the consequence of his actions. He is a loner who plays classical piano, and with
encouragement from his college friend Omar, an African American club musician, he begins
to redirect his life. When the opportunity comes along he bets everything on a small Chicago
manufacturing company, not to break it up for profit, but to rescue it.
He meets the beautiful and brilliant Lauren Hayward whose father built the company. Lauren
opens him up to love and a life beyond trading and money.
But the ruthless, Colt Murdoch, has his eye on the same company and has no intention of saving
it. What will happen WHEN VULTURES DANCE.
Insider trading, suicide, and attempted murder happens. Seth is arrested for a crime he didn't
commit, and faces years in prison, while the lives and well-being of hundreds of workers hangs
in the balance.
All of this plays out against the backdrop of stupendous wealth, the growing divide between the
haves and have-nots, and the rule of capitalists over the shrinking blue collar work force.
WHEN VULTURES DANCE is ripped from today's headlines, it's exciting, disturbing and its
happening right now on Wall Street and coming to cable television soon.
