Maxed Out

This is a heartbreaking documentary about the lack of consumer protection for middle- and low-income people in the US in regards to predatory lending. They had story after story of people pushed to the edge or actually committing suicide because they were just overwhelmed. Even college-age kids. One widow, in particular, had a heartbreaking tale. Her husband passed and she couldn't keep up with her house payments and basically sold every item she owned trying to stay afloat but was still being foreclosed. She tearfully revealed she'd thought about suicide, but her son had killed himself and she couldn't put her family through that, again. 3 hankies
