GDP Stories: How People Fall off the Edge of the World

One of 12 GDP Stories and short films from the NFB measuring the human side of the Canadian economic crisis.

My so-called plans

Date published : November 17, 2009

“My mom always had a job - I never had to work,” says 18-year-old Jessica. Then the recession hit, and those difficult teenage years suddenly got a little tougher.

'My so-called plans' is a new, intimate photo essay looking at the economic crisis through the eyes of 18-year-old Jennifer, who has moved out on her own after her mother lost her job and is trying to figure out her next move. You can watch the audio slideshow here:
