Frankly, the payoff to the movie's mystery is unsatisfying after all the buildup. None of these three stories really works as a short film on its own.

A morality play about economic inequality.

[A] multi-perspective telling of an event that, thanks to strong performances filled with emotional intensity, builds to an explosive revelatory conclusion as a slow burn, keeping one on the edge of their seat.

Human Capital is a journey of a movie.

While the stacked cast deliver exceptionally strong performances, the messy structure and sloppy screenplay can't bring a story with plenty of potential to life.
