When a Chinese billionaire decides to open a Fuyao factory on the grounds of a shuttered GM plant in Dayton, Ohio, and combine local labor with transplanted staff from China, the ensuing culture clash reveals deep divisions in worldwide perspectives on work, authority, and quality of life. With patience and care, Academy award-nominated master filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar mine their remarkable access to this fascinating industrial experiment to create a documentary that is timely, thoughtful, funny, and completely unforgettable.
