Then, one Tuesday, everything changes. Timothy wakes to learn that his hedge fund has lost 24 million dollars on a bad bet against the Japanese Yen. Timothy decides to double down and bet again. But the Yen keeps climbing, and his business investors start asking questions. With his company on the brink of collapse, he gets a call from his wife, who phones to say goodbye, moments before jumping off a cliff at Big Sur to her death.
