In times of rampant populism and growing mistrust, director Marcus Vetter accompanies Klaus Schwab, the 81-year-old founder of the controversial World Economic Forum, as he works to achieve his goal of improving the state of the world.
Since 1971, Klaus Schwab has brought together leaders from international business, politics and civil society in the small Swiss mountain village of Davos. For the first time in the 50-year history of the World Economic Forum, a filmmaker is allowed access to go behind the scenes.
The documentary follows Schwab over the course of two tumultuous years marked by the climate crisis, Brexit, the burning of the Amazon rainforest, the election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, and the trade war between the USA and China.
