99 Homes

Synopsis:

Desperate to save his family home, an unemployed construction worker (Garfield) is seduced by an unscrupulous realtor (Shannon) into joining him in the dirty business of foreclosing on the disenfranchised and reaping the financial benefits.  Having made this ‘deal with the devil’, he continues deeper into the heart of the corrupt housing industry and his financial worries begin to disappear, but the growing moral strain threatens to tear his family apart while his conscience begins to break him down.
