Meet Frank Campbell: American. Investment banker. Married father of two teenagers….and fugitive.
When Frank is arrested by the FBI for embezzling millions of dollars from his employer, White Hall Capital, he jumps bail and his fate in a white collar ‘country club’ prison for South America. But when the money he’s stashed off-shore disappears, his life quickly spirals from the glamour of Rio’s upper echelon to the shadows of the city’s favelas.
Expatriate is not only Frank’s story, but also one of Rio de Janeiro - a city undergoing immense change in preparation for the coming World Cup and Summer Olympics. The investment in infrastructure has never been greater, and yet the gap in wealth between the rich and poor is staggering. Brazil’s military wages campaigns against armies of drug traffickers and former police turned militia, pacifying favelas one by one and turning them into police states.
We’ve got some great work in progress to share, and we hope you come along for the ride.
Meet Expatriate’s main character Frank Campbell.
