The film follows the events and captures the atmosphere of a family faced with foreclosure. This procedure occurs over a long period of time during which the Medak family grows accustomed to the camera, accepting it as part of their daily life. Meanwhile their normal life falls apart... This film will compel you to ask yourself how a family can continue to function normally, knowing that in two days or perhaps two years they could be evicted from their home? A space in jeopardy. A family in peril.
