Summary NoteSummary: A provocative new documentary film study of Cleveland, Ohio--once America's fifth largest city, and today a metropolitan area struggling to reverse the cumulative effects of decline. Incorporating historic footage of Cleveland's vibrant economic past and recent interviews with city leaders and neighborhood residents, this film is an examination of the difficulties a new generation must confront in dealing with an uncertain future. This film seeks to educate and inspire citizens to engage in a better-informed civic dialogue about economic opportunities, social equity, regional impacts, and public and private partnerships to shape the future of Cleveland and other cities.
