The story of Windfall follows a wealthy couple who confront a home intruder while checking their vacation house at the last moment. While the tech billionaire starts to behave rudely with the thief, his wife decides to keep an eye on both the ruckus creators. She doesn’t want to create any more commotion and wants to leave the place happily. However, the villain keeps on finding ways to steal the assets of CEO, even negotiating with him to make a deal of $150,000.
Do you think the angry CEO will spare even a single penny for such a thief like Mr. Nobody? Absolutely not, who the hell to ask for it? Why should anyone handle his/her hard earned money? But, things are going to change as the intruder is not an ordinary man like a passerby. Whatever happens, there will be lot of suspense and mystery like in Ben Affleck’s Deep Water which is about to premiere on Hulu.
