It was my good fortune recently to stumble upon a small overlooked community in the heart of my own neighborhood. The inhabitants invited me into their homes and shared their histories with me. My heart was touched. Hitherto these people have had no voice. Unaccountably ignored by telemarketers and pollsters alike, it is nevertheless apparent that we have much to learn from them. They are truly America's little people, their joys and plights mirroring the country at large.
I am not an anthropologist. Nor am I experienced in making documentaries. Yet I could not help but see how much we have to learn from these amazing individuals, and so set myself about the business of bringing their stories to the world.
America, welcome to Plasticopia!
