Synopsis by Violet LeVoit

This incisive and poetic documentary by Jean-Loic Portron and Gabriella Kessler reveals the implosion of the once-proud steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania after the Homestead steel plant closed, and documents how the remaining residents still hold fast to their diminished community.
