Director Carmen Losmann’s film looks for answers to some of the crucial questions of today: Why is economic inequality on the rise? Why are both individuals and states increasingly indebted? Why is it that it is the clients who pay the most for bank crises? In order to understand the rules of a game, from which only a very small percentage of the participants benefit, she approached representatives of the banking and financial sector. Some wished to remain anonymous. The director put their answers into the mouths of actors and supplemented them with illustrative computer graphics. The document thoroughly, clearly and with foresight, analyzes the paradoxes of continuous economic growth and presents a tangible form of a system whose mechanisms should remain invisible in the interests of capitalism.
