According to the organization’s website, the film raises questions about how America’s financial institutions protect retirement savings. It asks “Will your IRAs or 401(k) accounts ensure a safe retirement?”  

The documentary is further described as an examination of retirement accounts, including the lack of uniformity in plans, which results in some workers paying much more than others; the cost of a seemingly small annual fee when spread out across a worker's lifetime; and hidden fees.
