The Portuguese financial crisis - the musical!

Social realism turns neorealist musical in THE NOTHING FACTORY, which tells the tale of a group of Portuguese factory workers who combat the cynical factory management with creative means. Documentary film maker Pedro Pinho's debut feature criticizes corporate greed and celebrates the resilience of the working class in equal measure, and while it is filled with clever and unexpected touches, it never loses sight of its main theme: This is a sharp, angry and highly original film about the economical crisis which continues to plague the Portuguese people.
