What do the United States and Papua New Guinea have in common? They're the only countries in the world without paid family leave. Most Americans agree that family comes first but in the richest country in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can be a trigger into poverty. No matter where you work or what zip code you live in, you should be able to welcome a new child, care for an aging parent or tend to a cancer diagnosis without facing financial disaster. But because 78% of Americans say they live paycheck-to-paycheck, families are often forced to choose between taking time off to care for a loved one or to continue work to keep their job and health care. Nearly 1 in 4 mothers return to work within ten days of having a baby and 2/3 of the current workforce are providing care for an aging parent. Weaving powerful stories together with insightful interviews with leading policymakers, economists, researchers, and activists, ZERO WEEKS explores America's paid leave crisis and the cost of doing nothing. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. A female director, with a track record for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens was inspired to make Zero Weeks, after facing financial depletion and emotional turmoil for "not enough time," due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Ky Dickens tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.
