Berlin prostitutes offer eco-discounts, a French hotel promises a hamster experience, Camp Millionaire opens for kids: When times get tough, businesspeople get inventive. Director Jamie Kastner is the ringmaster on this sardonic road trip through world markets. Traveling through California, Europe and Dubai, he encounters opportunists making the most of the economic crisis. Playfully juxtaposing the present day with ironic anecdotes from the Great Depression of the 1930s, Kastner uses humour and a great deal of pluck to lay bare the entrepreneurial spirit rising from the rubble of recession.
