I Took the Red Pill (Ich nahm die rote Pille)

I Took the Red Pill

in the corporate matrix
of greed and consumerism
everything has a price
everyone pays a price

The film expolores the concept of "pricelessness" (or rather the absence of it) in the corporate-driven, ad-mad, consumerist world we live in, thorugh the use of ad-style imagery and wordplay.
