Gotcha! is a story based on real events involving unethical business practices used by large American corporations to enhance the value of their publicly traded stock. The resulting collapse of entities such as Enron and WorldCom led to severe financial losses to public stockholders and the catastrophic loss of pension funds and health benefits to thousands of employees. The corporate executives responsible for the collapse of these companies, however, were rewarded for their mismanagement with “golden parachutes.”
Gotcha! is a story of a group of former managers of the bankrupt Whittaker Corporation who conspire to exact revenge against the corporate executives responsible for the company’s demise. These vigilantes attempt to execute a series of illegal scams involving burglary, fraud, and prostitution intended to ruin the lives of the executives who destroyed the company. Retribution is sought under the principal of “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
