This documentary tells the story of five Ohio families at a crossroads after the sudden closing of the GM Lordstown auto plant. The decision by GM forces thousands of families in the Mahoning Valley to decide between taking a transfer to an out-of-state plant, or staying put. If they stay, they risk losing their employment, health and retirement benefits.
As they wrestle these tough choices, they are left wondering why a company recording billions in profits is shuttering factories.
In a March 2021 interview in The Vindicator, writer-director Carl Kriss said, “The more I learned [about the Youngstown area], the more I realized the area had taken a lot of hits. What stood out to me as unique is that a lot of these families stuck together. There were a lot of these family bonds, a strong sense of community I’ve never experienced before, and I loved it.”
