One Couple's Turbulent Journey to Financial Independence.
Findependence Day chronicles a young debt-ridden couple’s long journey to financial independence. After being humiliated about their credit card debts on a national TV show, Jamie Morelli vows his personal Financial Independence Day will be the day he turns 50. His wife Sheena is slow to buy into the “guerrilla frugality” stance needed to save and invest. Jamie ignores her wish to buy real estate and jumps into the stock market just before it crashes. He goes for the big score when his hobby web site attracts interest from venture capitalists and a major Internet portal. After he is betrayed by a business partner, his world falls apart, threatening his dream of early financial independence.
