"Last week I stood in front one of those shop windows and looked at a bag I'd never be able to afford, and it suddenly hit me that this bag wasn't designed so I could put things into it, but rather that I myself would be able to be put into it." David needs love. He writes a series of e-mails to a French woman he had met on his job, but his past stands in the way. He's in debt. He must, in any conceivable way, sell his soul, his body. Jess is an obsessive shopper, a shopaholic. All the treatments fail, she must shop, she buys to save her life. But money isn't enough and neither is love. An Israeli premiere to Dennis Kelly's award-winning play. A witty, bitter look on the pathology of a financial crisis, sipping through human relationships. About the love of economy and the economy of love.
