Movie Summary

This is a highly personal, wryly humorous look at the closing of several General Motors plants in Flint, Michigan, the hometown of filmmaker Michael Moore, which resulted in the elimination of 35,000 jobs. Armed with a razor-sharp wit, compassion and more than a little chutzpah, Moore offers his perceptions of what went wrong in Flint, and chronicles his much-thwarted efforts to meet face-to-face with the big man himself, GM chairman Roger Smith.
