Öllers and Niederländer have everything under control. For the past six years, the two successful business consultants have been traveling the world’s seediest countries seeking to satisfy their clients’ greed.

Reality exists merely as a dusty silhouette behind the windows of their air-conditioned luxury hotels. Their goal seems to be within their grasp: to ascend to their company's top echelon and finally be made partners. Both are well aware that, according to their firm's unwritten rules in the hierarchy, they’ll need to secure their final promotion by their mid-thirties or else they’ll be sidelined: ‘up or out’.

Age of Cannibals is a mix of black comedy and social drama, a slick, sharp parody charting the fall of the new elite from the heights of hubris into a miserable abyss. A German take on corporate greed and the dark side of capitalism.
