Allegations of corporate criminality and high-stakes Wall Street vendettas swirl throughout this riveting financial docu-thriller. Controversial hedge fund titan Bill Ackman is on a crusade to expose global nutritional giant Herbalife as the largest pyramid scheme in history while Herbalife executives claim Ackman is a market manipulator out to bankrupt them and make a killing off his billion dollar short. Caught in the crossfire are ordinary Americans forging their financial future, working-class Latinos seeking justice, and a business model affecting the lives of millions around the world. BETTING ON ZERO weaves uncertainty, deception, hubris, intrigue, and greed in a surprising, deeply emotional dive into the world of money, deception and the American Dream.
Picture Motion will work to ensure the BETTING ON ZERO Screening Tour helps continue to lift the veil on Herbalife, support the efforts bringing justice to the people who were preyed upon, and pressure government organizations, like the FTC, to ensure Herbalife restructures or it gets shut down.
