For the First Time in the U.S.

This slow-burn bank heist drama is set afire by its stellar cast! Kota (Satoshi Tsumabuki) hears about an impending ¥1.5 billion gold bar job from his friend Kitagawa (Tadanobu Asano) and decides to take part. The gold bars sit in the basement of the HQ of Sumita Bank. Helping Kota and Kitagawa are bank security employee Noda (Kenta Kiritani), a North Korean spy pretending to be a college student (Shim Chang-Min), Kitagawa’s younger brother Haruki (Junpei Mizobata) and a former elevator engineer (Toshiyuki Nishida). These six men are about to carry the boldest of schemes to bypass the bank’s high-tech defense system.
