Halve the world's population to save the planet? A great idea, say politicians, experts and ordinary people. But who should go? A fictional documentary about the abysses of our civil society.
Our planet is currently experiencing several elementary crises, such as climate change or the Corona pandemic. Our societies are facing important decisions. Can we still control global capitalism, which has already gained the status of a moral authority? Or is it driving us against the wall? Can the suffering of individuals be balanced against an „economic common good“? And how important is solidarity across classes, countries or generations really to us, which we are so keen to write on our democratic banners? Starting from a radical premise better half satirically examines social, political and media patterns of reaction and thought, and reminds us how important it is to take a stand, especially in uncomfortable times.
