Detroit was once heralded as the birthplace of the middle-class. It was an industrial utopia, where if worked hard enough, you would attain the "American dream." Today, Detroit is on the brink of bankruptcy. The current woes of the city are emblematic of the collapse of the U.S. manufacturing base. Here, we get a cinematic tapestry that chronicles the lives of several people trying to survive and make sense of what is happening to their city.
