A portrait of three working class individuals facing disruption and change in their economic situations.

Filmmakers Sarah Colt and Josh Gleason explore the lives of working Americans in this engaging project following three wholly separate but thematically related strands. Pete, a Latino father in Ohio, is laid off when his factory shuts down, losing a union job that helped him turn his life around, and putting strain on his marriage. In Florida, Cheryl turns to driving for Uber and Lyft after losing an 18 year career as a mortgage broker, but finds the competition cutthroat and her income meager. Donn is a fifth generation Kansas farmer who faces the reality that he’s not able to make a living any more, putting the fate of the family farm in jeopardy. While a subdued film – and an oddly but likely deliberately apolitical one – it’s an honest portrait of working class survival and resilience.
