ZERO WEEKS is the first feature documentary to explore America’s desperate need for modern paid family leave policies. With the help of a variety of experts, we follow the historical arc of family and medical leave and how our nation arrived where it is now: lagging behind every other country in the world except for Papua New Guinea. The feature film makes an economic, social, medical, marital and global case for paid family leave by creating a poignant, hopeful and honest snapshot of how the lack of affordable time for caregiving impacts American families and business. The film follows various American families from different socioeconomic backgrounds as they are forced to choose between the family they love and the job they need. ZERO WEEKS introduces viewers to small businesses who are leading on leave, as well as doctors, economists, corporate leaders and elected officials who are making the case for paid leave. It also takes the viewer inside paid leave campaigns.
