Said by the finance magnate protagonist of the film:
“For a few immortals to continue to live, the mortals must die.”
The rise in prices, which in the movie pays in time, or minutes, days, years, is a precise maneuver of the financial system to bring the poor to death when it is necessary for the well-being of the rich: the people on whose watch tattooed on the arm, end their gained time thath they erned working or stealing in the ghettos they live in, they die.
Zero time means zero life, as in our world zero money means zero life.
This film is a sharp metaphor of our social system that continues to make people live in hunger, poverty, and hope to live better one day before they die.
