Often called “Dragons”, women in the financial sector still represent a small minority, especially in the upper echelons of power. In 2020, they were only 3%. The movie, filmed in different cities of Europe and Asia, shows a series of portraits of women who operate at the top of the financial industry, revealing the personalities that they had to build in order to gain access to important positions and the parts of themselves that they had to leave at home to reach those positions.
