‘One Dollar’ is set in the mysterious Rust Belt town of America. This small neighborhood is located near Western Pennsylvania where people are divided by culture and class. Things are normal but then, a certain one dollar bill enters the locale, bringing with it chaos and suspicions. The said bill shifts from one character’s hand to another, with the town witnessing a shocking mysterious murder. Secrets are revealed, dark lies are exposed, and the inhabitants get divided. There is also a bloodbath when a group of strangers gets involved in multiple murders. This is a fascinating tale where a single $1 alters the destiny of all its owners
‘One Dollar’ created quite some buzz when it was first announced by CBS. The murder mystery tries to paint a picture of modern America after the post-recession era. Even its advertised poster is dark and puzzling, depicting a torn one-dollar bill, bleeding from the downwards, with smoking steel mills added to the top. The picture of George Washington looks quite intimidating as he raises his fingers towards his lips as if he is indicating to hush someone. When you look closely at the poster, it resembles the map of the United States. And as it’s obvious, it created immense curiosity among the audience who wanted to understand what this tale is all about. So, “How much does it cost to bury the truth?” — this is the whole essence of this engaging drama.
