The film has a bare-bones look that only intensifies its nearly painful sincerity.

Economic predators are taking advantage of senior citizens who've lost their capacity to responsibly handle their financial affairs. The specific scenario may differ, but the scams are similar, following specific patterns. This film calls them out.

This would-be serious exposť of elder abuse is so mishandled it merely becomes an endless, clumsy and finally patronizing litany of woe, offering no real insights or solutions.

The doc is so obnoxiously simplistic that you find yourself strangely unsympathetic to its objectively inarguable aim to promote greater standards of elder care.
