The town of Zug in Switzerland has transformed itself into an international tax haven since the 1950s – and has grown immensely rich because of it. Based on her own family history and the Zug political environment, documentary filmmaker Luzia Schmid traces back how this wealth was paid for in Africa and elsewhere: with commodity speculation, profit shifting and the resulting economic problems. With a lot of tact and a sure instinct Schmid exposes her home town to the tragic interrelations that people there would rather not aknowledge.
