By award-winning directors Julia Reichart and Steven Bognar (A Lion in the House). In post-industrial Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opens a new factory in the husk of an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring two thousand blue-collar Americans. Early days of hope and optimism give way to setbacks as high-tech China clashes with working-class America.

REVIEWS

“Of all the documentaries you see this year, this one most potently embodies the ever-changing sense of the words “Made in America.”” – Peter Debruge, Variety
“The saga of Fuyao Glass America, a Chinese-run company that overtook the old GM plant and rehired thousands of locals, unfolds as a fascinating tragicomedy about the incompatibility of American and Chinese industries.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire
