Suggested correction: This is a question, not a plot hole. The company may have loaned the employees the equipment under contract that employees are responsible for any damage or loss. In which case, they can go after the employee (which is much easier for a few reasons). It would then be up to Kate to go after Leo for any costs she sustained because of his actions. She may also have been an independent contractor and bought the equipment, in which case, she would be the party responsible for going after Leo.


Plot hole: Kate could not get Leo's photo in order to get his passport.

Suggested correction: He was rich and famous, they had no problem finding information about him online, so could have found a suitable photo online (photoshopping it if needed).

Question: Maybe I'm foolish but if they're poor then how does Kate afford a nice looking car?


Answer: Just because someone is low income doesn't mean they can't own a decent car. Kate could spend what little money she has to pay for her car and still consider herself poor because she has no money left over after paying bills. Plenty of low income people still own decent cars because they are more reliable and require less maintenance than an older car, and are thus a good investment. Kate has three children, works two jobs, and goes to school. She has to have a good car to get back and forth and there's no way she could afford a major repair on an older car, so buying a new car is actually a smart choice for her situation.
