What is the main focus of the Exchange TV series?
The Exchange is inspired by real events, following the story of two women named Farida and Munira who attempted to infiltrate and then dominate the Kuwaiti stock market in the 1980s.
Farida is "on a mission to demonstrate she can provide for her daughter," according to a recent divorce. Munira is a clerk for the Kuwait Stock Exchange's Bank of Tomorrow's Trading Division.
Munira and Farida "face challenges as they smash the glass ceiling of the male-oriented financial industry, embarking on a journey of sisterhood, perseverance, ambition, and strength."
"I grew up in Kuwait, surrounded by empowered women who were blazeblazers in various industries, including finance." - Nadia Ahmed via Netflix Media Center.
The Exchange was "a labor of love, the result of years of collaboration and hard work as we studied the 1980s in an authentic way."
“It's a film that I've been following since childhood, showing off unique talents that women faced back in the 80's,” says Rawan and Mona. Besides the plot, I'm eager for the audience to see how we brought this period to life on the big screen, shot and produced entirely in Kuwait.
