To the Last Penny

To the Last Penny

Portraits of Liliane, Wilfried, Elodie and Haddou. They submit food stamp requests and unpaid bills to Martine, the social worker who helps them. They talk about the hardships of unemployment or the difficulties of raising children. Sometimes they talk about their anger. Life goes on without moving forward. Between a karate lesson, a choir meeting and a small job, every day is a struggle.
