Si-hyun (Hye-su Kim), the monetary policy manager at the Bank of Korea, predicts a massive national financial crisis and reports it to the Director. The Director doesn't schedule an emergency summit until 10 days later and does it without notifying the public of the situation. Si-hyun urges for the crisis to be announced in order to warn people of the looming disaster, but her plea is ignored. The summit is held behind closed doors. Jung-hak (Ah-in Yoo), a financial consultant, notices Korea is suddenly hemorrhaging foreign funds, and he learns the reason is that international finance firms have ordered an all-out investment withdrawal from the country, which has caused its credit rating to plummet. He hands in his resignation and decides to play the odds on what he's sure is a coming crisis. He secretly starts gathering investors willing to do the same. Gap-su (Jun-ho Heo), a family man who runs a small tableware factory, has a big break and wins a contract with a department store. ...Written by
Very well done, compelling movie, that challenges one to consider what is the roll of: financial policy, credit in an economy, labor policies, foreign investment, and about 10 other strong economic related motifs and crisis management amid a market collapse in the late 1990's.
The movie elegantly mixes in macro and micro story-lines so you consider/see a series of events unfolding at all levels, to consider the different sides.
It's well worth a watch if you enjoy econ/financial movies
