A refreshingly character-driven short film from director Aaron David DeFazio, Top Floor focuses on a high-powered hedge fund manager whose life begins to collapse around him. After discovering his biggest investor might be pulling out of the fund, he struggles to juggle fatherhood, his ex-wife and complications in his personal life. Selected for this year’s SXSW Film Festival, Top Floor is shot with poise and power and explores the world of finance which has so many layers behind the public sheen.
