One of the best documentaries I have seen.
6 December 2000 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

This is the closest I have seen a documentary come to reality. It is horribly sad and depressing. Our protagonist is such a loser! The scenes where she is working the machines in the factory really shows the lower end of our working environment. High school kids should have to watch this movie. They might pay a little more attention.
