Bring It Home | Trailer

BRING IT HOME tells the story of five families at a crossroads after the closing of the GM Lordstown auto plant. GM's decision forced thousands to decide between transferring out-of-state or staying put. If they stay, they risk loss of employment and benefits. As families wrestle these tough choices, they are left wondering why a company recording billions in profits is shuttering factories.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Man] If this plant was closing

because it was unproductive or bleeding the company dry,

that would be different,

but this plant is not closing for them reasons.

- [Man] They're a U.S. company

that was saved by U.S. taxpayers.

They went from on the verge of shutting down

to more than $10 billion in profits.

- [Man] This about a moral contract

with people as humans and communities.

People just want to know,

should we stay or should we go.

- [Woman] There's so many reasons it's hard to go.

- [Woman] I'm just not willing to leave my family.

- [Woman] They were probably be one of the most

difficult things I'd ever have to do.

- [Man] I wish you guys are just coming with me.

I wish you were coming with me,

but there's just too many unknowns right now.

- [Woman] The thing that we've built here in Lordstown

is not just a home,

it's what's helping us help our daughter

reach the best quality of life

that we can possibly reach for her.

- [Man] I don't think the corporation,

the people at the top understand

what they're doing to people

and how this is gonna be a long lasting effect.

- [Woman] That woman has ice water in her veins

because she knew she was doing this.

- [Man] You don't get to be a CEO

of a multi-billion dollar company

without having a little bit ice water in your veins.

- [Woman] My family is very important to me.

They're just tearing my family apart.
