Maxed Out

Takes the viewer on a journey deep inside the American Style of Debt. Casting a harsh light on 'hard times, easy credit, and the era of predatory lenders', this explosive documentary examines America's addiction to credit cards and the practices of corporations that profit from that addiction. Chronicling the financial desperation, bankruptcies, and even the suicides of citizens facing a lifetime of debt, this offers an unsettling portrait of society's culture of voracious consumption.
