After arguing whether great men are the product of nature of nurture, two super-rich siblings decide to settle the argument by constructing a cruel experiment in social Darwinism. Observing the results of their actions from a distance, they arrange to have the managing director of their commodities brokerage fired from his job and cast of out of his elite social circle, whilst advancing the prospects of a small-time street hustler who has been arrested for suspected robbery.
