The money maker

In the midst of the world economic crisis of the 1930s, the mayor of a Tyrolean community succeeds in doing the impossible: with a daring experiment and the so-called fading money, he miraculously leads Wörgl to full employment and prosperity. But for some it is exactly the big threat. Karl Markovics ("Maria Theresia") has appeared in front of the camera as "The Money Maker" since Tuesday, September 26, 2017, telling the story of the money maker in the eponymous historical ORF / BR / ARTE drama.
