Forget water, oil and rare earths - there is a new resource everyone wants: our time. This documentary investigates how time has become money, and how we can claim back control over this precious but finite resource.
Who hasn't come across the situation where an airline has us printing our own boarding passes and checking in our own luggage, saving the company a fortune in working hours? Who hasn't spent hours assembling a piece of furniture, or struggled with an automatic cashier? Haven't we all asked ourselves who should be paying whom for doing all the work? This documentary travels around the globe to investigate how time became a lucrative financial commodity, how the clock has taken over both our working and personal lives, and how we can claim back control over this precious but finite resource.Written by
