2008. The General Motors plant in Dayton, Ohio is closing its doors causing thousands of people to lose their jobs. Years later, the arrival of a new Chinese company brings some hope. At first the American and Chinese craftsmen work side by side, but before too long cultural differences cause some setbacks. A sobering look at contemporary economic globalization. An Oscar winning film!

It's the economy stupid

Economy. Otherwise known as those pages in the newspaper most people skip. However, economy plays a fundamental role in everyone’s life: will I find a job? Why is real estate so expensive? How can a country go bankrupt? Whether you like it or not, it’s all about the money ... DOCVILLE looks at this multifaceted theme from macro-economics to mini projects with a guaranteed basic income to the intriguing world of behavioral economy in which the often irrational behavior of people is translated into predictable models.
