Dayton, Ohio. The birthplace of powered flight, an industrial and military hub, now rebuilding from a Great Recession and the years preceding it that emptied city blocks and stripped out industry and wealth.
But there's new energy and vitality here. The fabled Average City, USA, is a place in transition, like America. Who are the people of the Emerald City? A roving camera captures them as they are – in all their hopeful, struggling humanity.
Introduction by Jim DeBrosse.
