have nOts explores our deeply held national belief that it is not possible to be poor in America...Unless you're really trying!
Are the majority of the poor simply "scamming the system" as many Americans apparently believe? And if not...how did we as a nation come to adopt this belief and who is benefitting from our ignorance?
Against the backdrop of this emotionally charged story, have nOts attempts to provide an honest look at how we came to believe what we do about poverty and why these beliefs may be contributing to the current disastrous trend of predatory corporate capitalism. Most importantly, the film challenges us to discover how we became a nation that appears to have so little empathy for the most vulnerable among us.
