On 6 March 2013, David Rossi, the director of communications of the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena fell from the window of his office. Did he jump or was he pushed? The film "Death of a Banker" investigates the Rossi case and its possible links to the shady dealings of the oldest bank in the world, which is currently sitting on billions of euro in bad loans and poses a significant risk to the European financial system.
The investigation leads from tranquil Siena to the financial heart of London, where shortly after Rossi's death, another banker lost his life under mysterious circumstances...
In the style of an exciting crime thriller, the documentary investigates the causes behind the fall from grace of the "Monte dei Paschi di Siena" and discusses possible serious failings on the part of the Italian banking supervisory authorities.
