Crypto Blues

Larry Etaleo is a boozer, a gambler and a talented architect but his worst habit is pushing people too far. After a week-long bender in Vegas, Larry returns to his Brooklyn apartment almost broke. His employers fire him. His wife Kerry can’t look at him. In a desperate attempt to recoup his losses, and save his marriage, he takes another risk. He gambles on Somnium, a brand new cryptocurrency developed by Max Fur, an ex-Silicon Valley player and a former client of Larry. Together they convince Kerry that Somnium will be bigger than Bitcoin and if they act fast they’ll all strike it rich. He always enjoyed a gamble but he never figured his reckless ways could lead to murder and losing the only woman he ever loved.
