Marc Isaacs chronicles the fate of several Londoners from various social classes during the current economic crisis. Shot in the financial district of London, the film focuses on four main characters, ranging from a high-end hedge fund manager who loses his family due to his compulsive monitoring of events on the financial markets, to a spiritually oriented street-sweeper seeking peace.
Using impressive music and images of the eternally rain-sodden British capital, Isaacs fluidly balances sensitive portraits of people striving to find their place in the swarming city of London.
"No one has ever made a film about the City that is so singular, so evocative and so human." - The Times
