'The Exchange' is a Kuwaiti historical drama series set in the late 1980s that revolves around two ambitious women — Farida and Munira — who take the financial world by storm and disrupt the stock market through their sheer will power and hunger. While Rawan Mahdi plays Farida, Farida's cousin, Mona Hussain plays Munira, a recently divorced woman who works for the Bank of Tomorrow's Trading Division.
The two main characters are accompanied by a group of other talented actors, including Mohammed Almansour, Hussain al-Mahdi, Faisal al-Amiri, Asmahan Tawfiq, and Maryam Salih. Both the biographical narrative and the stock market scene at that time are likely to enthuse you about 'The Exchange.'
