What happens if the financial crisis hits home? It makes painfully clear that the lives of people from all social strata and from all over the world are more interconnected than one may suspect. Minister or cleaning lady, car dealer or pastry cook, nobody is safe. The Domino Effect tells a few stories showing what happens when the material safety net drops away and happiness and well-being prove fragile. A mosaic film about dreams and desires, the fear of loss and the importance of family and love. The first scenes were shot when the financial crisis was still fresh, but the subject is more topical than ever. Shot with an international cast and crew on four continents.
