With the country's debt growing out of control, Americans by and large are unaware of the looming financial crisis. This documentary examines several of the ways America can get its economy back on the right track. In addition to looking at the federal deficit and trade deficit, the film also closely explores the challenges of funding national entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Patrick Creadon's documentary is good at spelling out how we racked up our steep national debt (the abridged 90-minute version anyway), but is short on solutions and even shorter on style. There's not much here that you couldn't get by surfing Wikipedia.
