Set for Life

Set for Life

The Great Recession (2007-2009) decimated the economy and put 15 million Americans, including many Baby Boomers, out of work. The award-winning SET FOR LIFE follows three Baby Boomers - a third-generation steelworker from West Virginia, a community college staffer from South Carolina and an IT project manager from California - struggling to recover. Thrust into a quest they never anticipated, they suffer financial woes, self-doubt and health problems while enduring the daunting job-hunt process and coping with their rapidly eroding American Dream.
