  • In the 90s, Argentina embraced economic globalization, but instead of making everyone rich, the economy collapsed. Businesses failed, unemployment soared, the government was paralyzed -- until ordinary people from all walks of life began to push their country in a new direction. Now, several years later, what has become of this outpouring of grass-roots energy? Have there been fundamental changes, or is it once again back to business as usual? From the producers of 'Argentina-Hope in Hard Times', this new film re-visits worker-run factories, and talks with journalists, economists, and unemployed workers, and provides a rare, inside view of the new models of work, politics, and community development that are now underway, as people are reinventing their society to offer a better life for all.
