    • Synopsis
    • FREE 'N CHANGE is the name of a counter-culture second-hand shop founded by Adam in the spirit of Los Indignados.
      Monetary currency is banned in the Trade ‘n Change warehouse and replaced by barter: the exchange of goods or services through a currency called the “Euron” a customized note based on time. One Euron is equivalent to one hour of an activity whatever that activity may be......


      ADAM (40) — an anti-globalization activist, an idealist and an eccentric — makes the acquaintance of Anna (40), an attractive and intrepid political journalist on the rise. Adam, still quite immature, collects short-term relationships. Anna is investigating a government minister in the eye of the media, and is living with her female companion a high-spirited feminist activist. Their friction will make sparks fly.

      THE STORY opens at a time when the continuation of the Warehouse is threatened by a building project and Adam is organizing a “resistance” concert where all those fighting for a better world are invited. However, Adam doesn’t know that the night before the concert a stranger has hidden in the Warehouse a new generation smartphone. The morning of the concert Anna wanders into the second-hand shop, finds the cell phone and buys it for her lady-lover. That night they both go to the concert and resistance-party at “Free ‘n Change”. But Anna’s sweetheart becomes jealous of Adam and decides to leave her taking the phone in her luggage and triggering a frightening series of events. THE PAIR (Anna/Adam) — both determined to find this extraordinary cell phone — launch into a wild pursuit that leads them deep into the activist underworld.
