Our banks seemed very safe. Until it turned out the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 set off a global financial crisis that also infected the Netherlands. This documentary takes us back to this period, when Dutch leaders and supervisors were caught unawares by the monetary mayhem. Our economy and prosperity were at stake and politicians and financial experts were forced to play a game, the rules of which they still had to invent. The protagonists look back on these seven ill-fated days full of devilish decisions.
