THE DEBT – Stills


In the midst of the early 90's recession, a series of disastrous telephone messages triggers a major domestic crisis for the Kosnicks, a yuppie couple at the end of their rope. In the height of their despair, a door-to-door Salesman tries to sell them a book about positive thinking... but for the Kosnicks it may be too late.
