Film Synopsis:

Somewhere in Europe a Greek owes to a French, who owes to a Slovenian and she owes to an Italian, who owes money to the Greek. A German owes no one, she just wants to get a good night’s sleep. The Brit is looking for an exit. The Invisible Hand of Adam Smith was made in one shot, with a cast and crew from more than ten countries. Each of them speaks their own language, yet all of them understand each other.
