What's it like to be a woman on Wall Street? With "Equity," Broad Street Pictures founders Alysia Reiner ("Orange is the New Black") and Sarah Megan Thomas (a Haverford-native actress) set out to offer at least a partial answer.

Shot partly in Philadelphia and in the offices of Ballard Spahr, "Equity" follows the tough-as-nails Naomi Bishop (Anna Gunn, aka Skyler White from "Breaking Bad"), an investment banker on Wall Street tasked with handling a major IPO launch while out to prove to her good-old-boy boss that she's earned her next promotion. Naturally, nothing goes as planned, as outside forces align against her, including: the media, her own protegé (played by Thomas), her two-faced Wall Street lover and an old friend turned white-collar crime investigator Samantha (Reiner).
