What is it all about?

A documentary

DON'T PAY ME is a portrait of people living alternative lifestyles throughout Europe. They share in common an active negation of the conventional priorities of having money and owning goods. Instead, they prefer to share their knowledge, homes, food, skills, and time. Though they are not paid with money, they have the feeling of living a luxurious life.
