Storylines 2

the official version from on July 13, 2012
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) - a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager - as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father's old barber, while remotely wageringhis company's massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer's luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellishas he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer's perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
A 28-year-old multimillionaire is chauffeured across Manhattan for a haircut but the journey takes 24 hours due to a presidential visit, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral. Stuck in traffic, the reclusive financial wizard anxiously monitors the value of the yen on the limo's computer. Using the car as his office, he summons advisers from nearby shops and restaurants, as he discusses imminent financial ruin with his broker.
