In ‘The Swap’ two brothers run in to each other, for the first time in years, at the funeral of their father. In the past he brought financial ruin to the family through bad investments. One bother blames the father for being irresponsible himself. The pain the two bothers feel for the loss of their father, but also the difficult times they went through with him, translate into an ideological clash of visions on the financial world: are the banks corrupt and pure evil, or are they the only ones that keep te world going? The brothers go to Davos in Switzerland where they confront an important banking manager with their vision. At first this confrontation gets out of hand, but when they take the banker into their world, they slowly develop some mutual understanding. As they hide out in a holiday home during ‘Bungle up festival’, surrounded by young people celebrating and enjoying life, the brothers learn, strikingly, through the shrewd banker, what it is to really take responsibility, and how to get closer to each other.
