Noted author Margaret Atwood’s brilliant essay "Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth" is the basis for this fascinating, poetic documentary on “debt” in all its various forms—societal, personal, environmental, spiritual, criminal, and of course, economic.

Filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes) strikingly interweaves sometimes surprising debtor/creditor relationships with insightful commentaries from renowned thinkers Raj Patel, Louise Arbour, and Atwood herself, creating a brilliant, game-changing rumination on the subject.
