This 60 min. documentary (work in progress)tells the story of the national foreclosure crisis through the eyes of hard-hit East New York - a community that is no stranger to tough times. As more and more homes in the neighborhood bear foreclosure signs, individual victims of egregious lending practices come to realize they are not alone, and find the strength to band together and save their community from catastrophe.
