EN - Rudolf Elmer, the whistle-blowing Swiss banker who breached bank secrecy, revealed - via the press and WikiLeaks - the seedy secrets of a Cayman Islands bank. Since then, he has been followed, harassed, exiled and jailed, spending over six months in preventive detention. Through documents and testimony, Elmer plunges us into the secretive world of offshore banking, an industry worth $15 billion and whose driving role is tax evasion.

FR - Rudolf Elmer a fait trembler le système bancaire  suisse en publiant sur Wikileaks des listes de clients ayant un compte dans un de ces paradis fiscaux appelé l’île Cayman. Le secret bancaire vascille et risque de ne plus être qu’un souvenir lointain. Un voyage inouï et passionnant dans le monde de la finance internationale au côté d’un homme qui a affronté seul et peut-être malgré lui, le monde bancaire suisse.
