Making Ends Meet

Driven by character narration, this documentary follows a low-income community member in Los Angeles to understand how material insufficiency affects community members lives throughout the month. The lack of material and financial resources and some may argue the lack of mental health service compels members to exchange with, borrow from, and donate to each other in order to preserve their lifestyles and avoid food insecurity.
