"Addiction is only a transaction away"

Chance Saller found that out the hard way during the summer of 2016 after he used his personal credit card to fund a film. The difficulty it took to pay off the debt was something he never wanted to experience again, and serves as the primary inspiration for SWIPE. SWIPE attempts to show how the convenience of a credit card can lead to a larger problem. This movie will show how an ordinary everyday item can lead anyone down the path of addiction.
