In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a universe of greed.
At one point, Detroit wears a pair of earrings with the phrases BURY THE RAG and DEEP IN YOUR FACE. These are lyrics from "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" by Bob Dylan, which is a protest song about a poor African-American woman murdered by a wealthy white man. ("Bury the rag deep in your face/ Now's the time for your tears".)
Hey, Cash. How much longer I gotta wait for my money?
Cassius Green: God made this land for all of us. Greedy people like you want to hog it to yourself, and your family.
Sergio: Me and my family?
Cassius Green: Yeah.
Sergio: Cassius, I'm your fuckin' uncle.
