Ambitious Jana is confronted with the unscrupulous machinations of the world of finance. Her working life is determined by egotism, the pressure to succeed and machismo. She soon has to decide how far she is prepared to go for her career.
After being wrongly fired from Crédit International, a prestigious investment bank in Luxembourg, Jana Liekam, a talented young investment banker, is offered a dream-job in Frankfurt under the supervision of prominent Gabriel Fenger, Head of Investment Banking at Deutsche Invest. Suddenly, Jana not only had to give up her job, but also leave her boyfriend and his 5-year-old daughter behind. While Jana quickly manages to impress Fenger and his team with her passion and ambition, she realizes only too late that Christelle Leblanc, her former boss at Crédit International, has secretly been pulling the strings and manipulating Jana to her own advantage. Soon, Jana finds herself torn between her new obligations and Leblanc's relentless blackmail...will she and her career survive this merciless power play?Written by
Aired in Germany on Arte in 2018 on March 1 (first four episodes) and 2 (last two) and again on ZDF on March 3, 4 & 5 (two episodes per day). While the two channels often co-produce programs, they typically don't air on both in such quick succession. See more »
I watched the whole season one because it was recommended by a friend to me. In my opinion it has great camera techniqueand storywise the end of the last episode is interesting.
If you don't know anything about finance and business at all, you will be surprised and maybe entertained by this story. Otherwise it is boring and the "women are soooo discriminated"-attitude is annoying. Mention it once and concentrate on a real story, not everytime when it is possible.
