Synopsis

 

"Good morning! May we drop in for a moment?" 

 

The movie Debts Inc. proceeds toward occupational groups living on those who can hardly service their debts: the bailiff, collection agencies, private investigators, debt advisers, auctioneers. The movie tells about debtors and collector's agents playing tag, and it watches those who, as part of their occupation, convert debts into credits, payment plans, interest payments, never-never contracts, and forced evictions.  

 

This is a movie about demolition zones within the economic system, and about the skillful handling of new poverty.
