      In 1968, American idealist and Piece Corps volunteer John Perkins (20’), is lured by a job proposition in a secretive company named MAIN, which the line of work involves convincing developing countries to apply for major loans from the World Bank so they can use their American technology and expertise to help the countries with a series of projects.

      As the years go by John learns that the intentions of the company are not what they seem and gets caught in a web of deception and lies involving politics and money with tragic consequences to the countries he “helped”. Uncovering the truth and realizing the catastrophic results of his actions he tries to redeem himself but it might be too late for that.
