THE COST OF LIVING is a documentary that explores the current socio-economic state of Britain and considers how the idea of a basic income could minimize poverty and the sociological toll of a growing precarious class. The film focuses on the feasibility of a basic income, John Rawls' theory of justice, automation and ultimately asks should there still be a cost attributed to survival?
