Payday is a documentary series following millennials as they navigate the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. These young workers and entrepreneurs now face an uncertain future that presents with it a slew of new challenges and opportunities. Some barely get by, while others thrive.
Each episode’s distinct city serves as the backbone of the narrative as we analyze our characters’ economic situations which are rooted in geography and status. Circumstance and location define their choices and opportunities.
Payday is ultimately a critical examination of a disillusioned generation who are highly educated and streetwise yet facing mounting debt, struggling to find decent jobs, and working to survive post-economic collapse.
