Verslaggever Henk Valk en cameraman Paul Ferguson zijn getuige van een dramatische periode in het leven van Laurens ten Hagen. Ten Hagen dreigt zijn huis kwijt te raken aan de bank en laat het televisieprogramma Dit Is De Dag toe om te registreren wat er dan gebeurt.

De reportage laat zien hoe diep hypotheekschulden in kunnen grijpen in een mensenleven. De spanning loopt hoog op als de deurwaarder aanbelt bij Ten Hagen om zijn huis te ontruimen. Ten Hagen doet een uiterste poging en klampt zich vast aan een kort geding tegen de bank.
