LWMIs it possible to feel rich without possessions? Can you live happily without money?

The German woman Heidemarie Schwermer made a deliberate choice to live without money 14 years ago. One day she cancelled her flat, donated all her belongings and started a new life based on exchanging favors, without the use of money. Today she is living an adventurous life, which is very much related to living in the moment without worrying about the future. The film shows the challenges she meets by living and alternative lifestyle, like finding food, transport and a place to stay.
A reflection on materialism and over-consumption –how money influences our way of thinking, living and acting –and the consequences this has on our life, health and environment.
