United States, 2019 (English)
In 1912 Roanoke, Virginia, a young girl struggles to help provide for her family by working in the exhausting conditions of a cotton mill while still holding to the optimism of childhood. This film is inspired by the photography of Lewis Hine, who documented child workers that had become the exploited, cheap laborers upon which America depended.
