As a senior investment banker her world of high-power big money is competitive and fierce, but she thrives in being a part of it. When Naomi is on the cusp of brokering a new deal, she finds herself entangled in a web of politics and deception. Soon an old friend from her past, who now happens to be a prosecutor (Alysia Reiner), is on her heels digging up dirt and her junior, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas), is tempted to backstab Naomi for her own survival. This brutal world now has Bishop reexamining her own ambitions and making her wonder if there is anyone she can trust.
The drama premiered at Sundance in January. “Equity” is directed, written, produced and even financed by women, making it a true female collaboration. The real-life women of Wall Street chose to invest in this project because they wanted their stories to be told. The result, a film that gives many male-led classics a run for their money.
