In November 2018, General Motors announced plant closures in Ohio, Michigan, and Maryland. The proposed restructuring to become more competitive would result in thousands of layoffs. While GM ran a PR campaign to justify its decisions, GM employees and their families were left with lots of questions. Would their plants be closed? Should they request transfers? What would happen to their pensions and benefits? Putting a face to the sensationalized media, this documentary introduces us to employees of the Lordstown, Ohio plant, including Tiffany King, who is a 23-year employee hoping to earn her pension. If she takes a transfer, she’ll leave her husband and home baking business. And Richard Marsh is deciding if he should uproot his special needs daughter, while married couple, Tom and Tiffany Davis, have to determine if they should live separately to maintain both their jobs. BRING IT HOME gives a voice to those impacted by plant closures. It is an intimate examination of how closures fracture families, strain marriages, and change the face of communities. — R.R.
