Summary

Title from container.

Based on the book by Naomi Klein.

Originally produced as a documentary in 2009.

Using "shock therapy" as a metaphor, the film investigates the idea of "disaster capitalism." When countries are jolted by catastrophic events such as war or natural disasters, they are often subjected to totally un-regulated "free market" remedies that benefit corporations at public expense.
