This documentary profiles economist and writer Marilyn Waring. In extensive interviews, Waring details her feminist approach to finances and challenges commonly accepted truths about the global economy.

Waring also speaks candidly about wartime economies, suggesting that government policies tend to marginalize the fiscal contributions of women.
