Synopsis

An insightful documentary on the professed HSBC whistleblower Hervé Falciani and the global controversy over banking privacy and international tax regulations of the last decade. In 2008, the former employee of HSBC stole over 300,000 bank accounts and distributed them to tax authorities worldwide - the biggest leak of secret bank accounts ever. Falciani’s list hit the international financial sector like a bomb and changed the course of history.
