PBS News Weekend

Season 7, Episode 0 of 4

A new documentary "Abacus: Small Enough to Jail" tells the story of Abacus Federal Savings Bank, a small, family-run bank in New York City's Chinatown. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, Abacus became the only bank --in the United States to face criminal charges for mortgage fraud. The film is now playing in select theaters across the country and is scheduled to air on the PBS program "FRONTLINE." NewsHour Weekend's Saskia de Melker talked to the film's director, Steve James, who followed the Abacus case when it went to trial and how the family fought back.
