Plot summary

What is The Laundromat movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Laundromat" movie plot summary.

The film opens with J眉rgen Mossack (Gary Oldman) and Ram贸n Fonseca (Antonio Banderas) introducing themselves, along with the concept and practices of money laundering. The pair continue to act as narrators for three stories of people around the world who are adversely effected by the machinations of their company, Mossack Fonseca. While the story has been somewhat fictionalized, the names of the law firm at the centre of the scandal, along with those of its founders, were not.
Characters Ellen Martin (Meryl Streep) and her husband, Joe (James Cromwell), are on a pleasure boat, the Ethan Allen at Lake George, New York when it capsizes, drowning Joe. When Ellen tries to get compensation from the boating company for Joe's death, she cannot because the reinsurance company that the boat company's owner and son, Matthew (David Schwimmer), bought their policy from was sold to another company based out of Nevis. The Nevis-based company is actually a trust of one of Mossack's shell corporations, which is under investigation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for fraud. When her attempts to contact Mossack and the Nevis-based company are unsuccessful, Ellen travels there to confront Malchus (Jeffrey Wright) Boncamper, the manager of the trust. Malchus tricks Ellen and escapes to Miami, where he is arrested by IRS-CI Special Agents at a Miami airport.
The second story is about Simone (Jessica Allain), who is the daughter of Charles (Nonso Anozie), an African billionaire. When Simone discovers her best friend is having an affair with Charles, he offers her shares (supposedly worth $20 million) in one of his investment companies to keep her silence. She accepts his offer, but when she travels to Mossack's offices in Panama City to claim the shares, they turn out to be worthless because they are actually part of a shell company under Mossack that only exists on paper.
