The history of money runs parallel with the entire history of mankind. The manifestations of money have changed repeatedly and will continue to do so in future. Money is one of the most important factors in the economic, societal and social development of civilisation. This is also shown by the different forms of money throughout our history, from primitive money and coins to the first bank notes and the virtual money of the future. For all these subjects, the film travels to the hotspots of finance, from London to Frankfurt, and on the ground illuminates the cultural history of money in a sophisticated way.
