He is offered a job in the Financial District where his "street-wise" attitude and quick wits see him excel as a currency trader.
Mickeys is successful over a number of years but the march of technology makes him appear a dinosaur to his new manager who is employed to update the treasury in which he works. She manufactures a reason to dismiss Mickey and his inability to compromise sees him leave the bank.
Not having to work, Mickey drifts until an opportunity in Dubai intrigues him. Visiting Dubai for the interview he meets a woman who will change his life. Accepting the position Mickey starts to receive a series of warnings about some of the bank's senior management and their illegal operations.
When he arrives in Dubai to take up the position he is thrust into a dangerous environment peopled by men he doesn't understand.
Mickey's "black and white" attitude and sense of injustice lead him to confront life head on with devastating results.
