The Divide
The Divide

 THE DIVIDE tells the story of 7 individuals striving for a better life in the modern day US and UK - where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%. By plotting these tales together, the filmakers uncover how virtually every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor.
