A village mayor enacts a bold and futuristic monetary scheme to save his alpine community from global financial crisis and fascism’s simple fix. The strength of a woman’s love as much as its romance injects the power for the small but passionate hero to see it through.

A story of money’s powerful grip on the whole world told with the true events of a tiny alpine town in 1932-33 Austria. Director Urs Egger depicts the daring experiment of a village mayor caught between hopeless recession and looming fascism. A recurring topic in current news – financial crisis and crashes – and the question how to make money work for us again and not against us.
