Synopsis: In times of crisis people seek strong leaders and simple solutions. But what happens when their solutions are identical to the mistakes that caused the very crisis? 'Overdose' is the story of the greatest economic crisis of our age - the one that awaits us. The documentary traces the origins of the financial crisis and explores the eerie similarities with today's situation, where states like Greece, Iceland and even the U.S. seems to be in danger of collapsing. Among those interviewed are experts who were mocked when they predicted the current crisis. Other interviewees include Nobel laureate Vernon Smith and former US Comptroller General David Walker (I.O.U.S.A). The film is shot in the U.S., Sweden and Germany and makes extensive use of music, archive footage and graphics.

Is it good? - Very good.

- You know you can trust us.

Here, it's best if

you keep the money.

- It's always me who has

to play the banker.

Look who's there.

- Who? Mikel Orbea, the sculptor.

Yeah, the faggot.

- But he's alright no?

Ask him if he wants to buy any hash.

I know what he wants to buy.

Paco we need the cash.

- Why don't you go? He's better with you.

You always leave me to do everything.

Hi Mikel.

- Hi Paco. Would you like buy any hash?

Take a seat.

- I'm in a hurry. But take a seat.

How much do you want?

- I've got no cash on me, you'd

have to accompany me home. No way.

Last time it wasn't that bad.

- I told you I'm not doing it anymore.

Alright alright.

I need the money, but not like that.

- You prefer to sell drugs? Yes.

Hey sit down.

At least allow me to buy you a drink.

- Make it only one.

You know, even though you're

a faggot, you're a nice guy.

- Well, you too, even

though you're a cop's son.

You are anti-military right?

- Look, being Basque from

Badajoz it's enough having

served with them to know

you despise the army.

You know I don't care

about such things.

It's likely I'll end up in the army.

- Do you want to? No.

Then how come?

I don't really have a choice.

Would you like some?

- Is it cocaine? No, heroin.

I'll pass.

So you're on the hard stuff

?, No less than heroin.

- There's nothing like it, hash,

anfetamines, LSD, none come close.

- What's up?, it

hits high right?

More than that, it brings you peace.

- Peace? Yes, peace, nonsense right

?, that peace that everyone always

talks about you find just like that.

Sniffing a bit of powder.

And you feel, at peace.

- Now I understand everything,

that's why you're

running wild chasing

money everywhere. Yes.

But don't you realize that...
