This is the story of a single coin, but it’s also the story of the almighty dollar. Why we want it, how it drives us, what it makes us become. Cos we are living in a material world...
Follow one coin as it passes from hand to hand to hand in a series of ten top dollar vignettes exploring our relationship to money. From the opening scene, where true friendship trumps a lack of cab fare, the audience are taken on a journey from the everyday to the extraordinary. The coin becomes a wager in a friendly card game between plane-bound strangers, a bargaining chip in the fight for fame and the key to everlasting love and happiness for the broken hearted. It is a witness to disintegrating morals, and great acts of charity.

This funny, poignant passage across the globe changes tone on the toss of a coin, switching effortlessly between kitchen sink drama to elegant storytelling to side-splitting comedy that may or may not involve football, Madonna and magic (it totally does). Sometimes hilarious, sometimes absurd, always entertaining, this is an ode to the root of all evil, the bread even coeliacs clamber for, the tastiest gravy there is - money.
