Dennis Nash, a construction worker, supports his mother and son.  But in the Orlando housing crash, construction work was not coming in and Nash could not pay his bills.  He tries desperately to work with the bank and the court, but to no avail.  His house is taken back by the bank with the help of Richard Carver and the sheriff’s department.   Richard gives the family 2 minutes to pack up everything they can before everything is put on the street.  While moving their belongings into a hotel, Nash realizes some items missing.  While confronting the eviction crew about his stolen property, Carver offers Nash a job doing construction, evictions, and “repairs”.   Nash’s only wants to earn enough money to get his family home back.  But how much of your soul are you willing to sale, just to get a piece of it back?

Just the opening scene shows you how desperate people are in those … well … these times.  The emotion of each tenant will pull at your heart strings.  All people, all races, all ages, and from all walks of life were met with a horrible knock at their door.  Also, you will be delve into the world of underhanded dealings, cash for keys scams, and a government that looked away for far too long.  You will become pissed off at Carver, but understand why Nash ‘does what he needs to do’ to get his home.  It will make you wonder, how far would you go.  Its easy to fall down a rabbit hole, if its paved with gold.  This movie could easily be based on a true story.  However, this film does not get at the root of the problem, just the aftermath.  The movie should have done a quick explanation of the bad mortgages and bulk loans done by the banks during the housing crash.

I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars

I didn’t take your house.  The bank did.  I just represent them – Richard Carver
