This documentary tells the story of seven people striving for a better life - in countries where the top 0.1 percent own as much wealth as the bottom percent.
Connecting their stories together reveals how most aspects of our lives are controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor.
Wall Street psychologist Alden wants to make it to the top 1 percent; Leah from Richmond, Virginia works at Kentucky Fried Chicken and just wants to make it through the day; Jen in Sacramento, California is unable to even talk to neighbors in her gated community - they’ve made it clear to her she isn’t ”their kind”.
By weaving these stories with news archive from 1979 to the present day, The Divide creates a poetic, psychological and tragi-comic picture of how economic division creates social division. The film was inspired by the best-selling book The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.
