Using the theory posited in the bestselling nonfiction book The Spirit Level as its springboard, The Divide investigates the negative effects on society caused by the widening inequality between rich and poor. The reality of the situation is explored through interviews with people of various socioeconomic statuses in the US and UK with contributions from academics and journalists. As the balance swings more towards those on the lower-income end of the scale, this film reveals the many lives led struggling to make ends meet in a destabilised job market. On the other side, the 1% that are seemingly enjoying financial success are also shown to be striving to hold onto that wealth and keep up with their peers, often at the expense of their personal lives.
