Summary: During the Great Recession, joblessness exceeds twenty percent East of the Anacostia River in Washington, DC. This documentary follows the intimate stories of Charles, Michael, and James, three long-term unemployed residents struggling to gain employment through 'shovel ready' green projects. When stimulus dollars run out, short term idealism clashes with day-to-day survival in the struggle to find a sense of purpose and place in a recovering economy.
