Late at night in a Westminster bar, principled junior broadsheet journalist Will Hewitt meets with no-nonsense Deputy Finance Minister Pippa Thomas for a routine interview on recent government fines imposed on the world’s largest banks. Their early exchanges spark fireworks as liberal idealist grills conservative elite, but Will’s true intentions are soon revealed as he ambushes Thomas with accusations of financial and political corruption.
