Meet the Melinskys—your typical reconstituted Southern California family intent on enjoying the sunshine and their four-car garage. When head of household Ted makes a few suspect investment choices, the family find themselves confronting the loss of comfort as they know it. Subprime explores one family’s journey as it struggles to maintain sanity and a roof over their heads in a world turned upside down by the quick pop of the real estate bubble.
