A crucial question: who owns the world? An economist tracks down a new spectre, haunting the planet – unconditional basic income. The film covers a fundamental issue – the question, who owns the world. From the diamond filled Namibian deserts, Mongolia’s copper mines and Alaska’s oilfields to Japan’s megacities and the world’s most renowned universities and think tanks, we travel to parts of the planet, which exemplarily stand for the earth’s resources (both material and immaterial ones). These places represent the underlying theoretical framework at a meta level in long, even-tempered shots, which shift the audience’s attention to a state of abstraction. The film’s theoretical superstructure is a reflection on classic liberal theories and moral concepts of the age of enlightenment, that more than ever shape modern, western societies.
