The premise of Black Monday
Set in late 1987, Black Monday is referred to as the Dark History of Wall Street, where the International Stock Market imploded and led to a collapse. Until now, no one knows who was the reason behind this implosion. The story is about a group of outsiders who took on a blue-blood, old-men of Wall Street who witnessed the collapse of the World’s most powerful financial system.
Blair Pfaff, a stockbroker enthusiast, joins Wall Street as an employee. A series of ludicrous events lead him to work for Maurice Monroe, who is a veteran stockbroker. As Blair is a young stockbroker, he does a lot of hard work to prove that he is challenging for high stakes. Meanwhile, he takes care of his careless, ruthless, and spoiled wife, Tiffany Georgina. Monroe has a wicked plan to take over Tiffany’s family business Georgina Jeans through Blair.
Dawn Darcy craves attention from Maurice Monroe and becomes impatient. Her main reason for being impatient was Monroe’s unwillingness to recognize Darcy’s work. Darcy’s husband wants her to conceive with children as he wants to enter parenthood. Due to his wish, their married life rests at stake. Keith, an employee alongside, is a bully who takes pride in bullying Blair Pfaff. Keith is a homosexual who has an affair with a Broadway Performer. On the other hand, Maurice Monroe struggles for two reasons: he has set very high standards, and now he finds It difficult to reach. The second one being they constantly live behind a false identity.
When Black Monday unexpectedly arrives, these characters find it difficult to deal with their internal, personal, and official matters, which resulted in the creation of a convoluted mess.
