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.

"The following story is

based on true events,

interpreted freely by the

imagination of the authors."

Here is your camomile tea madame.

- Thank you.

We are currently living a historic

period of decisive decisions

concerning our future.

- We'll see how long he'll last.

He's handsome isn't he?

- Handsome?

He's an a**hole.

- Evaristo for god's sake!

Don't say such things

in front of the girls.

- But isn't there

so much freedom?

Don't tell me all of a sudden I am not

allowed to say what I think.

Well the socialists now say ETA will

leave terrorism. - Yes?

They won't stop killing

until we waste them all.

I'm leaving, I must be

at the command by 3:30.

Till later Evaristo.

- See you later.

Be very careful. - I will, do

you feel any better? - I'm ok.

Make sure you're home early tonight.

- Alright.

No, I'm not going but we'll see eachother

later as always.

Hey, do you guys have any hash?

- Let's see if you buy for

once in stead of always asking others.

- I'm penniless Urko.

Here, you owe me 2,000 ok?

- Don't worry, I'll pay

you end of the month.

Dealing drugs right?, does

your father give them to you?

- No, your f***ing mother does.

Hey Peru, don't be stupid.

It's hard to believe you can behave

with people this way.

Leave me alone.

- Let's get out of here.

I'm up to here, it's not my

fault my father's a cop.

- None of us choose our father, that's it.

- I know.

But i'm sure if we didn't have this

mess, you wouldn't be my friend

.- Shut up, don't be stupid,

we're in this together.

- Yes, but...

- If I didn't like you

I wouldn't have gotten

into nothing with you,

you think too much.

Let's go to Betty's place,

I want to get stoned.

- Me too.

Stand in front of your dad's photo.

Stop messing around.

- Let me see! What are you looking at?

It's funny to see you together,

to be honest you don't

resemble him that much.

- I'm more like my mother.

See, isn't she pretty?

- Yes. This Saturday I'm

going to pay her a visit.

It must be a drag having

your parents separated no?

- No way, worse when

they were together.

To tell you the truth it's

damn good stuff, but "El

Cojo" is a bastard, everytime

it's more expensive

.- You need to try and

understand, life is hard

and everyone's out for one's own.

- You think?

Don't get too comfortable,

soon I'm leaving for work.

Poor Urkito, always

the first to vomit.

- It feels good to vomit.

With this stuff it's easy.

These guy's are amateurs.

- It's always the same for who starts.

Well Urko have you vomited a lot?

- Yes, more than enough.

Don't you say it's

better to inject it?

- If there's not enough

money to buy a lot yes.

- Of course, you've got

more than enough right?

Don't exaggerate, it's hard

work to earn my money.

- Betty, did you ask if there's

any place for me? Yes, they said they

didn't need any more girls, sorry.

You're also going

to prostitute?

- Shut up, I work in a

massage parlor understand?

Sure, giving

massages down below.

I'm fed up with you, if you weren't Paco's

friend you wouldn't be allowed here.

- What a mess you two, what a mess.

I feel great.

Your wife suffers from a carcinoma in

the ovaries in a metastatic phase.

In a situation like

this any surgical

intervention may cause her

to suffer pointlessly.

But her pains become more and

more unbearable each day.

Is there no way to avoid them?

- She should continue with the

injections I have prescribed to her.

Please understand, this is all we

can do to avoid her suffering.

Paco, do you have any hash?

- Sure, how much do you want? 2,000 worth.
