Commercials and advertising are ubiquitous and we are constantly bombarded with offers to buy the latest and best, from cars to clothes, and smart phones to tablets. We’re made to believe we need to purchase the newest iteration. It can be difficult to resist the temptation to keep up, especially when we’re missing out on the “things” that might make us “cool.”
For men interested in thinking more seriously about their habits of consumption this film provides a unique perspective and offers a new way forward for those inclined to make changes to their buying habits, focusing more on living and experiencing than on buying, purchasing, and owning. Living with less to make room for more of what really matters in life.
