  1. In the US people have to wait 5 days to cash a cheque??? And going into debt over medial expenses is just mind boggling. I'm in debt over my student loans and I've had to make tough choices when it came to working and helping take care of my mom after her heart failure worsened. However she has a nurse come in to check on her once a week for no cost. I can't imagine how much more difficult things would be if I lived in the US instead of Canada.

  2. instead of getting huge student debt for some crazy career, get a blue collar job like construction plumbing etc etc something that will guarantee you work and a check. instead of getting a brand new car from the dealer buy an older used car with cash. the point is avoid debt if and when possible at all times. debt will turn your life into a nightmare

  5. Why did American Express make this of all financial institutions. I feel like they are one of the most exclusive, as in reject, applications.. I've applied a few times just for a credit card, and only have inquiries to show for it. >.>

  6. I am surprised by all the comments below. I don't think the purpose of the documentary was to show that the banks got them into the problems they face… We all get ourselves into situations that get us behind the eight ball. However, I think that the point of the documentary is that banks take advantage of those situations and would rather perpetuate the situation than offer any solution. You might say "that's business",sure but it's despicable business!

  7. We need to instill credit responsibility at a young age. I hold 2 AMEX's and life truly is easier with no credit issues.
    Good luck, and God bless to these folks!!

  10. Is sad but is good to have money in the save account and use a credit card but pay in full.

  11. lot this could be avoided if people would study money, saving, investing, etc. Become a student of debt, interest rates, insurance etc. How money works, how it flows and how to apply it correctly. The one lady took her child out of private school after her car was repossessed? She had NO business having her kid in private school when you can't make a car payment. The one lady launched a hand bag business when she had over $100K in college debt? Sorry your dream goes on hold, you get job pay this loan back you make hand bags at home sell them online until your debt is paid off, then you start your business. So many things if done in the right order would save you so much hard ache…

  12. Nicely done movie but the music (read PIANO) in the end was truly annoying and bad! Very bad choice by the sound director for ending. Actually this monotonous piano would have beed bad everywhere.

  15. Only just came across this documentary in April 2016!  I thank God for good, caring people.  Let's all go back to being 'decent, selfless human beings' … if you know someone else is suffering, or struggling …. and you have more than they do, MAKE A SACRIFICE AND LEND A HAND.  It will come back to you in spades!!  This was an AMAZING VIDEO.  Thank you ….  from Europe.

  22. This is what American has become, you know train wrecks happen, but forced to watch it is heartbreaking. Millions of People around the world, that you think had a sturdy foundation in the Middle Class are one bill away from being  poor.

  27. This hits close to home my husband and I have been struggling for years and have just bounced back from being homeless due to the kindness of my husbands new boss. The biggest mistake during the time was getting a Title Max loan it has been killing us to refinance every month by selling and pawning our things and are now facing the fact of letting the car go instead of continuing to be stuck in the cycle that we can not afford. Yes money is an issue but I am happy to be alive , to have my husband, this little apartment and our two little furkids salem and harley. Life is hard but it is even harder if you can't appreciate the little things in life.

  28. As much as I do think that life is a lot to do with choices, I think this really does push the need for universal health care, or at least affordable health care in the USA. I think Obamacare was the wrong approach; it being at a Federal level.
    You can't just let people suffer like this; a lot of these people had made the right choices and just by pure circumstances were not equipped to deal with the situations in which they found themselves.
    Also, double cheers to +American Express for doing this doco!

  33. I feel their pain. I had two jobs, lost one. I cannot find another because I get medical and other benefits from the part-time job, and companies are unwilling to hire because they want you to work around their schedule. It is a " catch 22." because if you try a new position and doesn't work out, then you end up with no insurance,
