Bad Banks is a thrilling peek into the high-stakes world of high finance. The six episodes of Season One follow Jana Liekam, an up-and-coming investment banker in Luxembourg. Her conniving boss Christelle Leblanc gets her fired, and Jana has to get a similar job in Frankfurt, leaving behind her boyfriend and his 5-year-old daughter. Behind-the-scenes, Leblanc continues to manipulate Jana for her own obscure plans, tipping her off to an attractive deal. Now indebted, Jana is expected to deliver something in return...

Bad Banks takes us on a breakneck journey into the highly complex system of a major bank. We meet protagonists who keep the circulation of the global financial economy going with varying motivations and high personal commitment, and yet are always in search of recognition. With them, we ask ourselves: What are you worth? What do you live for? And what price are you willing to pay?
