Storyline

To the residents of Moraine, Ohio, General Motors was more than just a car company, it was the lifeblood of a community. In the wake of GM's 2008 announcement that it was closing the plant, stunned workers looked back at their careers at GM, reminiscing about the opportunities, friendships and pride that the factory line had given them. Through their words, this documentary stands as an elegy to a dying American manufacturing system--and a timely look at the U.S. auto industry in crisis. Written by Anonymous

I live in Dayton, and although I have sympathy for the no-longer-employed of GM Truck & Bus, I feel this film is not Oscar worthy. Perhaps I feel that way because this film was "shoved" down our throats in the Dayton area. GM is not the only major employer to leave Dayton and this film lacked depth, in my opinion. In Dayton, one of the workers featured in the film has done her best to make it all about her, by going on several local news broadcasts and sending mass emails. Which is, I suppose, rather pathetic when you think about it. I don't know her personally, but her overt narcissism has jaded my judgment of this documentary short.
