This is a story of money, power and impunity.
Ten years after the crisis, tongues finally loosen.
A white collar criminal speaks out and tells from the inside this period that changed our world for the worst.
This documentary digs into the mechanisms that led banksters to cross the red line. It investigates what goes through their minds, how they ended up where they are, and how the system used some of them. It gives a voice to the banksters themselves, their relatives, the former “insiders” they rub shoulders with, to those who were in the eye of the storm.
Beyond their extraordinary destiny, unfolds the history of the downward slide of finance over the last fifteen years and its dramatic consequences for the public. In this world, the truth doesn’t matter.
