Storyline

For decades in Toledo, Ohio, Lott Industries has excelled at manufacturing small car parts. All 1,200 Lott employees have developmental disabilities, yet the company competes with traditional non-disabled businesses and achieves the highest quality ratings. When the US auto industry crisis hits, however, Lott's market is wiped out and president Joan Browne has 12 months to reinvent or close the doors. For the workers, the stakes are even higher since their jobs are a refuge, not only from the impoverishment that affects the majority of America's disabled, but from social isolation. For employees Kevin, Wanda and T.J., work is more than just a direly needed paycheck, it's a lifeline, a symbol of their dignity, and their dreams made real. The race to find a new business plan drives this engrossing recession economy drama, but it's the humanity the film restores to the balance sheet that makes A Whole Lott More such a rare achievement.

this is a must see film!
22 October 2013 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The film "A Whole Lott More" is dramatic, poignant and emotional with a tremendous thematic statement for people of all ages, all diversity and all type jobs. This film creates an awareness of special needs people trying to assimilate into our society. It also shows how unique and talented they are, they just need an opportunity. The film will help anyone come to understand how much these special needs individuals have to offer and contribute in a positive fashion in our society. In this film you learn so much about them and their daily life struggles but the irony from this film is you will learn a lot about yourself. You will come to understand that we are all partners on this planet and we all have to find ways to help one another.
