J.T. Marlin is a boiler room–a shady brokerage firm using questionable sales tactics to push stocks. After his father (Ron Rifkin) disapproves of Seth (Giovanni Ribisi) for running a gambling casino in his apartment, Seth is like putty in the hands of a recruiter (Ben Affleck) who hires him as J.T. Marlin's new salesman. Seth sees the new job as his chance to reconcile with his father and become a millionaire at the same time in this "greed is good" story.
