Three people kill themselves every day in France because they’ve become trapped in a vicious spiral of debt.

All over Europe, household over-indebtedness is on the rise; it’s a ticking time bomb. Though it doesn’t always lead to suicide, it often causes a ‘little death’ of economic and social exclusion and serious psychological distress, a nightmare from which it is extremely hard to escape.

Deaths on Credit is an investigative documentary that examines the alarming and inexorable rise of household over-indebtedness throughout Europe, and the battle against this economic, social and human scourge.

Program is also available in French.
