Directed by Daniel Knudsen
"CREED OF GOLD: The Wealth of Nations" will thrill audiences this fall as an unlikely trio faces off against the entire international monetary system in a saga that takes them from Red Square in Moscow, Russia, to the streets of New York City. Father-son team, producer Mark Knudsen and director Daniel Knudsen, bring an intellectually-based family adventure drama to the big screen with the story of Adam Smith, a college student who, against all odds, must clear his fatherÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs name and protect the interests of the world from those who would exploit it.
For years, a secret conglomerate has manipulated financial transactions around the world to influence national economies for personal advantage. The secret was kept for decades but when Russian history professor Vlad Dostoevsky in the 1980s discovered evidence that linked these shadowy financiers to a contemporary group operating in America, the chase was on. But, the mystery was not DostoevskyÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs to solve. It would be almost 20 years before DostoevskyÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs son, having sought political asylum in the United States and now going by the name Adam Smith, would dig into the international financial dealings shrouded in mystery.
It is at Havenhurst University, an Ivy League school in New York best known for its scholastics, that Adam finally has the chance to prove his father right when his money and banking professor assigns him a paper on the Federal Reserve. Despite AdamÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs best arguments, Kirsten Stanford, AdamÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´s assigned project partner, is unconvinced of what reeks of a conspiracy theory about international financiers and the Bolshevik Revolution. However, Kirsten cannot stand by for long as events accelerate which prove that there is definitely more than meets the eye. Her personal attitudes on ethics begin to change. Then, when her roommate dies unexpectedly, she has to make some very important choices ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å which will change her life forever, and maybe the course of a nation. What began as a term paper on the Federal Reserve becomes a fight for their lives as Adam and Kirsten glean further evidence and track down new leads.
Unable to understand the extensive data from the Federal Reserve, Adam and Kirsten enlist the help of Cody, AdamÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´s eccentric roommate. A math and computer genius, Cody remains skeptical of the whole connection between the Federal Reserve and the Bolshevik Revolution but he has unwavering faith in Adam. Finally close to exposing the whole tangled web of intrigue and manipulation, their inside connection at the Fed is mysteriously killed and the Federal Reserve abruptly plans to switch out their old computer system, effectively erasing all possible evidence. Suddenly, this is not a game. The stakes are life, death and the future direction of the United States.
Can this trio of friends put together a compelling case strong enough and fast enough to reveal corruption at the Federal Reserve? Can they ultimately expose the truth about the Bolshevik Revolution before their trail of evidence is destroyed and they are eliminated?
