Elizabeth Holmes came to Silicon Valley with a revolutionary medical invention - a small black box called Edison, which was able to perform 200 tests with one drop of blood in a few minutes. Like Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Thomas Edison, Holmes intended to demolish and revolutionize an industry. The catch? All of it was a lie and the system proved to be a total hoax. One of the hottest technology companies in 2014 - worth $9 billion - was in ruins, exposing the weaknesses of Silicon Valley. Oscar-winning documentary director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) takes viewers on a journey through Silicon Valley, showing its dark sides and distortions. He draws attention to the shallowness of a place where you can promote your lie by showing a woman who managed to win over investors and get huge funding for a product that turned out to be one big hoax.
