Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
Jordan Belfort begins a low-level job at an established Wall Street firm. After being taken under the wing of company executive Mark Hanna and becoming a licensed stockbroker, he is retrenched due to the firm's bankruptcy following Black Monday.
Belfort's wife Teresa encourages him to take a job with a Long Island boiler room dealing in penny stocks. Belfort impresses his new boss with his aggressive pitching style, and earns a small fortune for the firm and himself. Belfort befriends Donnie Azoff, a salesman living in the same apartment complex, and they go into business together along with his accountant parents and several friends. To cloak the fact the firm is a pump and dump scam, Belfort gives it the respectable name of Stratton Oakmont, shortly after which FBI Agent Patrick Denham begins investigating the firm.
