About the Film

When Dayton, Ohio's General Motors plant closed in 2008, thousands of blue-collar workers lost their livelihood in a community hard hit by the recession. Eight years later, a Chinese billionaire opens a new factory on the same site, bringing back jobs and inspiring newfound hope—until Chinese labor practices clash with the expectations of a formerly unionized American workforce. Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert won the U.S. Documentary Directing Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival for this masterful portrait.
