About the movie

“The Party. The Hangover. Pack of Wolves. The Fight. The Verdict.” Iceland's banking sector was deregulated and privatized in 2000-2003. Within five years the banks were 11 times the nation's GDP with short term funding and long term assets - some of them very risky. By October 2008 global capital markets froze and Iceland's banking sector collapsed. 'Ransacked' tells the story of how super wealth, hedge funds and the global economy can affect the lives of normal people. Thorsteinn Theodorsson lost his business and almost his life, but with the help of his daughter they took the bank to court. Eight years later, the bank has sold off the profits and made billions again. Who wins and who loses?
