Sua and Jib are like any other couple in this world except that for the past 5 years they have kept their relationship a secret since the bank where they are employed has a strict “No Fraternization” policy.

With neither willing to take the leap of faith they both turn incident into opportunity when an ATM glitch in Chonburi province cashes out over $130,000 baht. The terms are simple: whoever is able to recover the money first gets to keep their job.
