Arriving this October is Netflix’s latest biographical drama. Based on the controversy and scandal of the tax-evading companies using Panama law firms to hide money in offshore bank accounts, we can expect this to be an eye-popper. We have everything you need to know on The Laundromat, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.

The Laundromat is an upcoming Netflix Original biographical comedy-drama based on the screenplay by Scott Z. Burns. This is the second Original directed by Steven Soderbergh after his 2018 title High Flying Bird, except this time around the film, hasn’t been recorded on an iPhone.

What is the plot of The Laundromat?

The following synopsis has been provided by Netflix:

When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world’s wealthiest citizens amass larger fortunes. Founding partners Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. They are about to show us that Ellen’s predicament only hints at the tax evasion, bribery, and other illicit absurdities that the super-wealthy indulge in to support the world’s corrupt financial system.
