Michael Winterbottom directs this feature-length documentary investigating the idea of 'disaster capitalism' as posited by Canadian journalist and social commentator Naomi Klein in her book 'The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism'. The film explores the idea, originally proposed by economist Milton Friedman, that neo-liberal capitalism feeds on natural disasters, war and international terrorism to assert and establish its dominance.
