Greed (Gier)

Event (Two-Parter): 15.01.2010 | 8:15 pm | arte

Whether unscrupulous real estate sharks, successful traders, large manufacturers, bored heirs, or aspiring small investors - they are all insatiable when it comes to entrusting their money to one man in anticipation of breath-taking returns. Investment consultant Dieter Glanz is aware of his reputation, and is generously rewarded by the customers who trust him with their money, inviting him and his wife Gloria to splendid parties and allowing them to participate in their elaborate lifestyles. Whether in his luxurious property or a private jet, for Dieter the splendour of the world and the dream of great wealth has become a reality. But none of his investors are aware that these luxuries are just a dazzling and splendid front that serves only to elicit "fresh money" from them. The investors follow Dieter like he is a "guru". But suddenly, the dream of almost unlimited wealth becomes a nightmare for Dieter, and the luxury villa becomes more like a prison where evil conflicts break out, as the investors begin to question this alleged financial genius and even each other.
