The year is 2135 A.D. or 2121 A.O. (after Obama). A 12 year student is almost heart broken at what she sees in this wasteland; a factory in ruins. Once a powerful machine that allowed Americans, as they were called, to flourish and prosper. But through the greed and egos of corrupt-bought and paid for "politicians", the government allowed businesses to have their goods and services produced in other countries. Thus the decline of American Manufacturing. The country fell into decline and imploded on itself. Millions were left unemployed, homeless and starved. No health insurance made sure that families from all parts of the country eventually moved to other countries or just gave up, got sick and all died off. America became a police state, the likes of which the world has never seen. How could this happen? Ask the people in Washington, DC that dare call themselves leaders.
History repeats itself, so why don't we pay any attention to it?

The factory building used in this film is a former Burlington Mills plant which was shut down in 1999 and all the equipment in the million square foot facility shipped off to China. This building is the coal fired steam plant that provided the mill its heat and electric. The plant had one time provided the US with over 30% of its towels and cloth material for the production of blue jeans. See more
