Synopsis
Can a price be put on human life? The answer would seem to be "no": a human being is priceless, his worth cannot be determined in terms of money. The very idea appears to violate the principle of human dignity. "What am I worth?" The filmmaker asks it both of himself and of his protagonists throughout the world. He talks with healthcare economists and insurance brokers, politicians, scientists, organ donors and lawyers, discovering ethical minefields and an economic abyss... The audience is led into a world where the monetary calculation of human worth has long since become business as usual. The insights provided are as shocking as they are revealing; cruelty meets and mixes with absurdity and even dissolves at times into high comedy. - A road movie through the fascinating and bizarre world of those who appraise human worth.
