Plot Outline:

An affecting look at our economy's relentless struggle with debt by singling out a handful of human interest stories; there's a lot of talk about how we should do something, but not a lot about how we can, though the subject is approached with great care and the repercussions felt by a few are touching and emotionally gripping. Final Grade: B

Upon watching people admit to camera that they want to kill themselves for being so deep in debt, it really made me realize that some of the most successful groups of people in America are parasites. One of the things that disgusted me most was that credit card companies still send credit offers to the deceased people's families (with the deceased people's names on the envelopes). As a college student, I want to recommend this film to my fellow mates because we ARE the main targets of these credit card companies. (They visit our campuses!) It's so sad to learn that the ONLY way out of debt is death. If you don't believe me, watch this movie. You will see that debt is an endless, vicious cycle of torm...
