Ava, an Iranian girl suffering from depression, blames recent political events in Iran for her troubled mental state and goes to a psychologist. He advises her to take on physical work, and later, to work on a play. However, the play, inspired by the reality and problems of her society, is banned. It is election time. The city is alive with possibilities. A new wave of hope has sent people massing into the streets to participate, to vote against the current president. Everywhere there is singing, dancing, action - a vibrant, passionate vision of a very different future for her country. But Ava still doesn't believe change will come. She leaves her home and talks to people in the streets, trying desperately to rekindle her own hope.

The film traces the doctrine?s beginnings in the radical theories of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, and its subsequent implementation over the past forty years, in countries and situations as disparate as Pinochet?s Chile, Yeltsin?s Russia, Thatcher?s Britain, and most recently the neo-con invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The film traces the doctrine?s beginnings in the radical theories of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, and its subsequent implementation over the past forty years, in countries and situations as disparate as Pinochet?s Chile, Yeltsin?s Russia, Thatcher?s Britain, and most recently the neo-con invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The Shock Doctrine will expose the darker side of Friedman?s ideology, which was so unpopular it could only be implemented through the use of torture and repression. Documentary based on the book of the same title by Naomi Klein explaining the rise of disaster capitalism: the exploitation of moments of crisis by government and big business in order to ransack the economies of vulnerable countries.
