What would you do if your income were taken care of?

Imagine a situation where you and everyone you know who lives in Scotland received the same minimum payment from the Government each month, regardless of your circumstances.

It may seem a far-fetched idea, but the concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI) has been gathering steam, with several trials set to take place in Scotland within the next couple of years. What used to be seen as a utopian dream has been backed by entrepreneurs, economists and philosophers from across the political spectrum and put forward as the next embodiment of true democracy. But what shape would it take – and would everyone be better off?

Spanning contemporary and historical perspectives, this playful documentary powerfully brings the concept of Universal Basic Income, and its possible implementation, to life.
