In Toledo, Ohio, one company – Lott Industries – has made a huge difference in the lives of 1,200 disabled individuals, all of whom are employed within. For many years, the company was a successful maker of auto parts. But with the financial crisis of 2008 decimating the auto industry, Lott Industries, like many other companies of its ilk, stood to be hit hard, if not completely levelled. This moving film chronicles what turns out to be a make-or-break year for the company from the perspective of five of its employees, and shines a light on the challenges faced by America’s disabled.
