Description Extended Information
 
Over 30 million people, a quarter of the American workforce, are employed in jobs that pay less than the federal poverty level for a family of four. How is it possible to work full-time in our country and still be unable to afford the basics of a decent life? This honest, intimate film takes a sobering look at the working poor, and the deep-rooted national myth that if you work hard enough you can rise out of poverty. Putting a human face on modern economic realities, the film tenderly profiles four workers over a three-year period, revealing their struggles, setbacks and accomplishments as they pursue the receding American dream.
