Abstract:

A documentary about the effects of the recession, specifically the closing of a General Motors plant, on Janesville, Wis. That's how he found himself, a few years later, with an up-close view of one of the meanest and most dramatic chapters in recent American politics: the battle over collective-bargaining rights for Wisconsin state employees and the subsequent effort to recall the Republican governor, Scott Walker, from office. The film follows laid-of workers. A powerful and balanced illustration of the power of community, and individuals to protect the American dream.
