In this hour-long documentary, director Anne Lewis chronicles nearly a decade of change in Morristown, Tennessee, through interviews with displaced and low-wage Southern workers, Mexican immigrants, and their families. As Eastern Tennessee workers lost their jobs, Mexican workers came north to find them. The same global economy impacts all of us, and the film shows how working-class people — caught in the throes of massive economic change the world over — can work together, challenge their assumptions about work, family, nation and community, and ultimately evolve as they stand together in the face of globalization.
