Fritz Gets Rich is a darkly comic animated fable warning of the dangers of spiralling entrepreneurial greed. When Fritz’s tooth falls out a “magical’}” trade takes place with the Tooth Fairy. Fritz wakes up to find a shiny new one-dollar coin under his pillow. Fritz’s first encounter with money ignites his six-year old entrepreneurial spirit and from that moment on everything changes.
