‘A Leak in Paradise’ explores the story of banker, Rudolf Elmer, a Swiss whistleblower who defied secrecy and revealed to WikiLeaks the seedy secrets of a bank in the Cayman Islands. After being tailed, harassed and jailed, the banker introduces us to the world of offshore banking. An industry worth 21 thousand billion dollars, whose driving role in tax and finance deregulation weakens our democracies and destroys a public social contract.
