Partners Emily Pilloton and Matt Miller seek to affect change through design. When they bring their innovative curriculum to struggling Bertie County, NC, they not only teach practical problem-solving and construction skills to their high school students, but offer hope for business rebirth in the form of a final project that will benefit the entire community. Will they succeed, or will budget setbacks and a resistant school board quash their forward-thinking vision?

85 Minutes

"Nuanced... inspiring... a design story at its core, but stand back a bit and you find something grander: A document of America at its most vulnerable."
