Gordon Gekko is not out of prison (I did not see the previous film). It is 2008 and we know the market is going to crash. His daughter and her boyfriend are the other central (and likable) characters. She wants nothing to do with Gekko, however her boyfriend gets in contact with him. Her boyfriend is a Wallstreet type with a heart. I won't tell you any more of the plot because it is late and I need to go to bed. I had some trouble in understanding all the details but that didn't matter too much.
