Sixty million dollars and 400 hours of videotape later two female filmmakers return with a compelling story of dot com burn-out.

There is a lot to be said for being in the right place at the right time. Twenty-five-year-old, Jehane Noujaim, didn't even have to leave her home for the inspiration for her first documentary. 

She was sharing a flat with a twentysomething entrepreneur, Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, who had chucked in the day job at Goldman Sachs to kick off an ambitious multi-million dollar business called GovWorks.com.
